East End Road, linking East End and the southern section of the Great North Road with Church End, was the main east-west road in Finchley.


Although apparently not so named until the late 19th century, it probably dated from the 14th-century growth of East End. Hunts Green, mid-way along the road, was mentioned in 1437 and Piryton Lane, named in 1423 and 1485, may have been the western section of the road near Church End.

Long Lane, named in 1719, ran from Ballards Lane to Bulls Lane. The eastern section was called Broad Lane in 1814. A short lane led from Bibbesworth manor-house to the church by 1657 and was called The Avenue by 1897. Several roads linked Long Lane with East End Road. The most westerly was Squires, formerly Place, Lane, which ran north from Bibbesworth manor-house and continued across Long Lane to the common and eventually to the Great North Road. Its northern section, Short Lane in 1657 and c. 1867, was probably the Heybourne Lane mentioned in the 1380s. Green Lane - as known as Philips Lane joined the central portion of East End Road to Long Lane. Bulls Lane, which after the building of Holy Trinity church in 1846 was called Church Lane, ran from the eastern section of East End Road across Long Lane to the common and the Great North Road.

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a project which is creating street histories for the areas of London and surrounding counties lying inside the M25.

In a series of maps from the 1750s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today. There are now over 85 000 articles on all variety of locations including roads, houses, schools, pubs and palaces.

You can begin exploring by choosing a place from the dropdown list at the top left and then clicking Reset Location.

As maps are displayed, click on the markers to view location articles.

You can also view historical maps of London - click on the "pile of paper" control on the top right of a page's map to change to a particular decade.
