Turnpike Lane

Turnpike Lane once belonged to the 'Stamford Hill and Green Lanes Turnpike Trust' and a turnpike gate was erected in 1767 at the Hornsey Lane (now Tottenham Lane) end of the road; it was removed in the 1870s. A 'Turnpike' was a gate set across a road to stop those who were liable to pay a toll. Originally this was a frame consisting of two crossbars armed with pikes and turning on a post - hence the name.

The names DUCKETS GREEN and HARRINGAY were considered but the station was opened as TURNPIKE LANE on 19 September 1932.
