Trent Park was until 2012 a Middlesex University campus. After the university’s departure, Enfield council expressed a preference for the site to remain in educa­tional use – with the retention and enhancement of the historic buildings and landscaped parkland.

From at least the early 16th century this was an estate granted to the cock (chief) forester of Enfield Chase. Cockfosters developed as a hamlet long before most other parts of Enfield Chase. It lay on the edge of woodland, halfway along the road from Southgate to Potters Bar. A Lincoln’s Inn barrister owned a house called Cockfosters in 1613 and a small group of cottages and houses had formed by 1754.

In 2013 the campus was bought for around £30 million by a privately owned Malaysian university. This venture did not work out well, the site is currently vacant and Trent Park’s future remains uncertain.
