The former county of Middlesex is now covered with west and north London suburbs but its wooded origins are evident in the outer fringes. The Royal Hunting Forest of Enfield Chase stretched across the northern part of the County, providing timber for medieval wooden churches and domestic buildings. A notable survivor is the Great Barn at Harmondsworth, in the shadow of Heathrow Airport. The rich wooden interiors of the City of London Churches are testimony to the splendour and lasting value of native English timber.
This tradition continues today with wooden floors. Practical, durable and beautiful, many are often undervalued – damaged, neglected or covered over. If your floor is underachieving, enhance your property by a professional restoration - through sanding, staining and sealing.
Old layers of varnish or paint can be removed and the floor given a modern finish. The liberated floor will prove a wonderful investment to add to the value of your Middlesex home.

Did you know about Middlesex?
Middlesex was a county in England, established in antiquity and abolished on 1 April 1965. Middlesex contained the wealthy and politically independent City of London on its southern boundary and was dominated by it from a very early time. The generally low-lying county was the second smallest by area in 1831. It was significantly affected by the expansion of the metropolitan area of London in both the 18th and 19th centuries, such that from 1855 the southeast was administered as part of The Metropolis.
There were settlements in the area of Middlesex that can be traced back thousands of years before the creation of a county. It was recorded in the Domesday Book as being divided into the six hundreds of Edmonton, Elthorne, Gore, Hounslow (Isleworth in all later records), Ossulstone and Spelthorne. The City of London, which has been self-governing since the thirteenth century, was geographically within the county, which also included Westminster, which also had a high degree of autonomy. Of the six hundreds, Ossulstone contained the districts closest to the City of London.
The economy of the county was dependent on the City of London from an early time and was primarily agricultural. All manner of goods were provided for the City, including crops such as grain and hay, livestock and building materials. Tourism in early resorts such as Hackney, Islington and Highgate also formed part of the early economy. However, during the 18th century the inner parishes of Middlesex started to function as suburbs of the City and were increasingly urbanised.
