When we talk of Middlesex where do we mean?

The County, the Province or the Tribal Lands?

It's possible you didn't even realise there is a choice!


We do know that anyone who says Middlesex
‘doesn’t exist’ is talking out their hat.

The assumption that because the County Council was abolished Middlesex is abolished is fanciful - did Middlesex not exist before 1889? For that is the very recent date the Middlesex County Council was formed.

And as you will read and learn,
nothing could be further from the truth.


Middlesex Day Countdown
to May 16th

Welcome to the London Borough of ENFIELD in north  Middlesex

It was incorporated in 1965 by bringing together the Middlesex Municipal Boroughs of Edmonton, Enfield and Southgate.


Enfield's Capel Manor, a glorious horticultural centre on the Middlesex/Herts border, was so annoyed at the Royal Mail for putting it postally in Hertfordshire, that it vigorously campaigned to be officially given back its Middlesex address, and won! In thanks, top Patriot, Mr Bill Bossom, cultivated the beautiful Middlesex rose
