Aldborough Hatch is a area of London, England, located in the London Borough of Redbridge. It is a semi-rural locality situated to the east of Barkingside and Newbury Park. The area is noted for Aldborough Hall, a former mansion now used as an equestrian centre.[1]

Toponymy[edit]

The name probably derives from the Alborgh or Albourgh family who occupied the manor in the Middle Ages and are mentioned in 14th and 15th century records. "Hatch" derives from the Old English word hæcc ("hatch gate" or "wicket gate"), which originally gave access to Hainault Forest when it stood here.[2]
