The image of the Marshes has fluctuated over the ages, from a marginalised, even dangerous, are of floods and malaria, to clean open spaces used for agriculture and leisure. But they have in their own unique way reflected the changes and events of Tottenham as it passed from a Saxon settlement, to a feudal manor, and then a village parish and finally an urban town, following changes in agriculture, transport, population, industry and leisure.

This brief history of an often forgotten part of Tottenham follows this progress through the ages.
