Tottenham is an area in North London, England, Originally a rural area in the County of Middlesex later an Urban District, it became a Borough in 1934, then a part of London Borough of Haringey in 1965. Tottenham grew up along the old Roman Road, Ermine Street and between High Cross and Tottenham Hale, todays Monument Way. A rural Tottenham featured in Isaak Waltons book The Compleat Angler published in 1653 Tottenham remained a semi-rural and upper middle class area until the 1870s. The Great Eastern Railway introduced special Workmans Trains & Fares on its newly opened Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway & Chingford Branch Lines. Tottenhams market gardens and low-lying fields were then rapidly transformed into cheap housing for the lower-middle and working classes, who were able to commute cheaply to inner London. This fare policy stimulated the relatively early development of the area into a London suburb. The River Lea that formed the eastern boundary of the Borough of Tottenham to Walthamstow, Middlesex to Essex, was also the boundary of Danelaw. This is now the boundary of the London Borough Haringey to London Borough of Waltham Forest. Tottenham is the home of Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Football Club, whose ground at Paxton Road is named White Hart Lane after the site of the original ground.

Bruce Castle is certainly not demolished. It houses the Borough of Haringey's archives and the museum is open for part of each week. The museum is continually being developed. The medieval tower that stands adjacent to the castle is also still standing. The grounds of the castle, a municipal park since 1892, are well maintained and provide a valauable community resource for leisure and events.
