Enfield Lock - the edge of north London
Enfield Lock is one of the most northern points of London, located at the tip of the borough of Enfield. The area didn't see any major development until 1812, when a government rifle factory was built there. It's mainly residential, with a small population of 16,469 recorded in the 2011 census, and was very village-like until the building of the M25 in the 80s.
