Turnpike Lane is a street in Haringey, north London.

Description[edit]

Turnpike Lane forms part of the A504 route, running roughly east–west for less than one mile.

A small park named Ducketts Common is situated at the eastern end of the road, opposite the Underground and bus stations. It was once an area of common land where people had the right to graze their animals.
