Yesterday, I took a trip up to breezy north London to see the mighty Dulwich Hamlet FC secure a point against Enfield Town.

I took time out to wander around the town after the game and grabbed this small collection of photos:

Former Enfield Electricity Works, now Grade II listed.

Built in 1906 and constructed from red brick with extensive buff terra cotta dressings and a slate roof, the building has been lying empty for years.

Splendid late Victorian bank architecture.

This Barclays Bank branch was the first place in the world to have an ATM or cash machine. It was officially opened in June 1967 by Reg Varney, a television actor and personality most famous for his lead role in the comedy series On the Buses. This historical event was marked by a silver plaque on the wall of the bank, which has since been vandalised/removed and replaced with an English Heritage Blue plaque. Read more here.
