Description

Whitewebbs Park, containing a public golf course and areas of woodland, is situated on former parkland laid out after the 1803 enclosure of the former Enfield parish common land, which had been created from Enfield Chase in 1777. The present house was built in 1791 by Dr Abraham Wilkinson, a notable agricultural improver.

In 1931 the estate of approx.100 hectares was purchased by Enfield Urban District Council and Middlesex County Council and made into the public golf course, which retains much of the parkland character.
