is a district of North London.
Built up in the mid 19th century as part of an area called Brownswood Park, today, like other areas of London, it is a district without a formal town centre, but distant enough from other town centres that it has come to be recognised as an area in its own right. It is centred on Manor House tube station
on the Piccadilly line
, at the important crossroads of Seven Sisters Road
and Green Lanes
. Most of the streets of the district lie within the London Borough of Hackney
. However, it is close to the border with the London Borough of Haringey
so some residents living within the Borough of Haringey would consider themselves to be living in Manor House.In the area of Manor House the boundary between Hackney & Haringey Borough runs:
- *North and East of Manor House crossroads, it skirts the Eastern edge of Finsbury Park for a short while before heading East along Eade Road.
- *To its West, it follows the Southern edge of Finsbury Park.
- * To the South the whole area is Hackney.
- *Finsbury Park is all within Haringey.
