St Jamesís Church, Hertford Road, Enfield
St Jamesís Church was built as a chapel of ease in 1831 on ground south of Green Street given by Woodham Connop (Lord of Durants and Suffolks Manors).

The church is a plain-aisled building of stock brick, in 'Commissionersí Gothic', with a western tower and battlemented exterior. The chancel in the Early English style was added in 1864. There were galleries round three sides of the nave by the end of the 19th century. The north and south galleries had been removed by 1967, when a fire seriously damaged the east end of the church. It was restored in 1969. For more about the church and parish see LinkExternal link

The church has a large churchyard and to the east, as an extension, is Hertford Road Cemetery. The land for the cemetery was acquired by the Enfield Burial Board in about 1880 and the cemetery was developed as a separate entity from the adjacent churchyard. The Burial Board was wound up in the 1920s. This view of the church is from the churchyard.
