And now for a bit of History on Belsize Park

‘Belsize,’ deriving from the French ‘Bel-Assis’ (meaning ‘well-situated’), dates back to 1317, taking its name from the manor and parkland built by Daniel O’Neill for his wife, the Countess of Chesterfield. After WW1, construction increased within the area, particularly apartment blocks, alongside retail units and schools, which laid the foundations to the area which is now so well-known.  During WW2, a large air-raid shelter was built underground, the entrance of which is still visible near the tube station at Downside Crescent.
