Post by John Dye: Cool Oak Lane, NW9

I lived at Queensbury Road, Kingsbury during World War II and used to play regularly along the edge of the Welsh Harp. About halfway along Cool Oak Lane on the south side was a pond we used to call Froggy Pond. It was the only place I ever saw a water scorpion, Nepa cinerea.
At the end of the war, all the street air raid shelters were knocked down and the rubble was piled up on the ground south of the Cool Oak Lane bridge, on the Hendon side. I remember that this heap of rubble became infested with rats and I used to watch them from the bridge. I was told that an old house on the south side of Cool Oak Lane (Woodfield House?) was once owned by the wife of Horatio Nelson. I think it later became the nurseries for plants grown for the Hendon parks.

Post by Cassandra Green: Rudall Crescent, NW3

I lived at 2 Rudall Crescent until myself and my family moved out in 1999. I once met a lady in a art fair up the road who was selling old photos of the area and was very knowledgeable about the area history, collecting photos over the years. She told me that before the current houses were built, there was a large manor house , enclosed by a large area of land. She told me there had been a fire there. Im trying to piece together the story and find out what was on the land before the crescent was built. This website is very interesting.

Finchley Central



Church End Finchley is a place in the London Borough of Barnet, popularly known as Finchley Central after the Finchley Central station changed its name in 1940. It is a suburban development situated 7 miles (11.3 km) north north-west of Charing Cross.

The main road runs on a north-south axis, and is called Regents Park Road from the North Circular Road until it reaches the station, where the name changes to Ballards Lane. Its heart is the ancient district around the St Mary?s Church, where the imposing tower of Pardes House (formally Christ?s College Finchley), is a landmark. There is a public library, Church End Library and Finchley police station. Along Ballards Lane, close to the station, is a retail district with some Victorian and Edwardian shoping parade as well as modern shops including Tesco.

To the southeast, along East End Road are two institutions of note Avenue House home to the Finchley Society, and a Jewish cultural centre the Sternberg Centre. South, along Regents Park Road is College Farm the last farm in Finchley, and a statue, referred to locally as ?The Naked Lady?, but more properly called La Delivrance. Victoria Park is the home of Finchley Carnival, a large fun fair held every year in July, dating back to 1905.

History


Hendon and District Archaeological Society has found a number of interesting Roman artifacts at Church End but nothing conclusive, and the Saxon settlement
near to the church may not be a continuation of its Roman predecessor. The Domesday Survey mentions a priest, and a church building was documented in 1157. The oldest fabric of the present church is 13th century. The fifty-foot tower (c1450) was much restored in the 18th century when the weathercock, in the form of the ?Lamb and Flag? the badge of the St John, was added. The church is, however, dedicated to St. Mary, an enigmatic feature that defies local historians to this day. Eastern extensions carried out between 1913 ? 15 to designs of architect, Temple Moore have greatly expanded the church. Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore in 1819, is buried in the church. The most important grave in the churchyard is that of Herbert Chapman the manager of Arsenal Football Club in the 1920s and 1930s. Bram Stoker, may have had St Mary?s graveyard as his model for his fictional ?Kingstead?, the uneasy resting place of Lucy Westenra in his book Dracular. A more benine spirit, St Mary?s graveyard is also the resting place of Coventry Patmore?s wife Emily, the model for the poem The Angel in the House (1854), and the upon whom the Victorian model of domesticity ?the Angel of the Hearth? is based.

West of the church is the Greyhound pub rebuilt in 1898. Originally called the church house it was used vestry meetings from the 16th to 1878. In 1676 the inn, by then was known as the Greyhound, burned down in a fire. In 1855 a fire brigade was established, renamed the Hendon volunteer fire brigade in 1866, and a manual fire engine was kept in a building the church. Further west Church Farmhouse Museum, opened in 1955, is run by the London Borough of Barnet.

Hendon War Memorial was unveiled on St George’s Day, 23 April 1922, but was moved to its present location in 1962. By 1906 Sir Audley Neeld was building in the lands that had been Renters Farm, starting with a new road from Station Road to Queens Road, later called Vivian Avenue. The eventual estate used many names associated with the family: Dallas, Audley, Elliot, Graham, Rundell, Vivian, Algernon, and, of course, Neeld. Other names are associated with Neeld estates in Grittleton, including Alderton, Fosconte, Sevington, and Allington. Hendon Central Station and the Watford Way were constructed in 1923. The road was supposed to cut through the Neeld Estate but a local ratepayers group in Hendon Central, backed up by Hendon Urban District Council, petitioned the County Council in January 1924 and central government, and the route was changed so that it would pass up Queen?s Road (better known now as the Hendon Way).
