An eighteenth-century plan proposing a new branch of the turnpike road from Swineshead shows North End as a separately-named settlement from where the new road was to sprint in a straight line across the fenland to Boston. When it was built, its east-west alignment was grafted on to the end of a lane running north-south, thus forming the sharp bend on the Boston Road which still marks the northern edge of the settlement in the village.

 

As in the rest of the village, North End's road network of 250 years ago remains virtually intact, as does the pattern of settlement. From a detailed plan of the new enclosures drawn up in 1783, it is possible to identify the location of numerous buildings of the period which may still exist today.

 

Two buildings in North End are already listed Grade 2- the old mill on Station Road and a large cottage on a bend of the Boston Road. Other buildings tend to be scattered among more recent development although there are two noteworthy groups; a row of three cottages on Boston Roed, including 'Thiepval', together with a neighbouring farm cottage (opposite the Grade 2 listing). Another group comprises 'Aston Villa', 'North End Stores' and 'Craven House', best seen as a group from halfway along Villa Lane. 'Baby Row' is a unique addition to the North End landscape as are old farmhouses further along.
