The land where Granville Road Spinney now sits was farmland until the 1870s. When the railway came to north London, the farmland was built on.
During World War II, a VI flying bomb destroyed 7 Victorian houses on Granville Road. These were replaced by prefabs that were removed in 1980. After that the area was left as open land.
