St Ann's extends from Chestnuts Park in the west to Seven Sisters Road in the east. To the south, its boundary is defined by the London Overground railway line.
St. Ann's Church was built in a rural setting in the middle of the nineteenth century and consecrated in 1861. A hamlet soon began to grow up around the church. However, it was quickly swallowed up by the northward march of London. By the mid-1890s, it could no longer be distinguished as a separate hamlet.
