Street was a small village with a hall, a big house, a farm.
Hall. This stood south of Bury Street roughly in the
area of Darley Road. It was a grand Jacobean house, enlarged in 1750. It was home to
the Galliard family but its last owner was William Bowater, the paper-maker. It
was said to have a cellar “covers a larger area than the house, and is believed
to have been connected with a subterranean passage that linked up the old
houses in Bury Street, and connected with the Church.” It was demolished for the
building of Cambridge Road in 1920.
Hall Farm stood opposite the Hall on the north side of Bury Street

Edmonton’s education committee. In 1944 the senior department became a mixed
secondary modern and in 1960 this moved to Rowantree School and Raglan reverted
to being a primary. The Infants School was built in 1934.
