Ponders End: The Granville
Ponders End: The Granville
Now pretty in pink The Granville once served a small neighbourhood of houses where workers at the Ponders End jute mill at the end of Duck Lees Lane lived. The jute mill was short-lived and in 1886 the Ediswan Company (formed by Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan) took over the building and converted it into a factory manufacturing electric light bulbs. The factory continued production until 1969, and was demolished shortly afterwards.

Today all the Victorian workers' houses in Northampton Road, to the right of the pub in the photograph, and Alpha Road at the end of the Screwfix building, have gone, the area having being swallowed up by the Ponders End Industrial Estate development, leaving the Victorian Granville as a sole reminder of an aspect of Enfield's industrial past.

The pub was briefly closed in 2008 and 2009 but is now open again.
