The name Potters bar is quite amusing, right. History states that the name comes from Roman pottery, which is evidently believed to have operated in the Parkfield recreation area.
The Potters Bar you see today was not a developed place to live in. However, after the first railway station opened in 1850, things changed. Now that got an effective way to travel to Potters Bar; people have started living in Potters Bar.
After the railroads started expanding themselves all over the Potters Bar, it took its first steps towards the development phase. Light industry arrived after World War II, and two large council estates were built.
Fast forward today, Potters Bar has become the most desired place to live in London.
