This article is about the current A1010 north of London.

.

The A1010 follows the original line of the A10 between Tottenham and the far side of the M25.

The road starts at traffic lights by Bruce Grove station where the A10 TOTSOs left to zigzag onto the Great Cambridge Road. The A1010 continues ahead along what was the A10 until after World War II. It heads north along Tottenham High Road, soon meeting the A109 at traffic lights.

The road continues through the centre of North Tottenham. The White Hart Lane stadium is clearly visible to the right; a road with that name does exist but is a short distance further on and on the left, accessed via traffic lights. Tottenham High Road ends at the boundary of the London Borough and the road bends to the right and becomes Fore Street. Shortly afterwards the A406 North Circular is crossed at a GSJ, although that road is in a tunnel here and not easily visible.

The Cock Tavern, Edmonton

About half a mile further on the road reaches Edmonton Green, where a huge block of flats marks the approaches to a roundabout where the A1010 bears to the right. It then runs along a dualled section past the bus station and shopping centre before the road narrows once again. The road name is now Hertford Road, one of the destinations of the A10 but one we won't actually get to. Hertford Road only goes as far as Ponders End, where we go along the short High Street before crossing the A110 at traffic lights.

We've been in the London Borough of Enfield since we left Tottenham some time ago but the suburbs we're now going through seem to emphasise that. Enfield Highway leads into Enfield Wash, where we cross the narrow Turkey Brook. A short distance further on we cross the A1055 at traffic lights before crossing our second major London ring road, the M25. Like the A406 this is also in tunnel and is not visible at all. Just afterwards the road goes past Lidl before leaving the old A10 at a roundabout; that road continued ahead along Waltham Cross High Street which is now pedestrianised. We bear right to follow the dualled Waltham Cross bypass. At the next roundabout we reach the A121 and the A1010 ends. The B176 now continues along the ex-A10 through Cheshunt; this was at one time numbered A1010 but it was downgraded when the A121 was extended west to a new junction with the present A10.
