The Crescent in Hertford Road















Grandest building in Edmonton must surely be The Crescent in Hertford Road.  It took thirty years to build, and was completed in 1856.  Where there are now private gardens was once a carriage drive with communal plantings.

High density housing, and yet preserves dignity and individualism.

It urgently needs to be restored - Edmonton does not have such a surfeit of fine architecture that it can afford to lose The Crescent.
