Cockfosters
 (голосов: 0)
CockfostersCockfosters. This district of north London was recorded as Cockfosters in 1524 and although the origin of the name is uncertain, it is possible that it is derived from either the personal name of a family that once lived here, or a house recorded in 1613 on the edge of Enfield Chase and called Cockfosters. It is suggested that this was the residence of the chief forester (or cock forester), hence this rather unusual name which, until the arrival of the tube, was sometimes spelt as two words.

Prior to the station's opening the name of TRENT PARK was considered, but it opened as COCKFOSTERS on 31 July 1933.
