Lodge Lane has existed since the late eighteenth century.

Finchley Lodge (from which Lodge Lane takes its name) may have existed by 1564 and was certainly there by 1667. Much of the estate was sold off by a man called Chapman in the 1820s for building after the enclosure of Finchley Common.

Minor roads grew up along the edge of Finchley Common with Swan Lane, Woodside Lane and Lodge Lane all existing by 1780. A footpath led from Woodside Lane to Totteridge and a church path joined Whetstone to the northern part of Nether Street.

Finchley had a number of named roads in the Middle Ages which have not been identified in modern times. Unidentified roads included Smiths Lane or Way (mentioned in 1422), Tromer Street (1424 and 1484), Merelfield Street (1429), Woodsend Lane (1436), Procession Lane (1452), Croftlethe Street (1457), Cowperes Lane (1463) and Bush Lane (1484).

Finchley Lodge was later reached by Lodge Lane.

Charles Jacques built twenty one cottages in Lodge Lane around 1824 and constructed Torrington Cottage as a residence. By the 1830s there were other houses and in 1837 a dissenting chapel, "Cottagers Chapel", which had been converted from the stables of Orchard Cottage.

The Torrington Arms was at the corner of the Great North Road and Lodge Lane by the late 1830s.

By 1839 North Finchley had at least five retail outlets including a blacksmith called Elizabeth Humphreys. These were on Lodge Lane rather than on the High Road.

Some early-19th-century farm cottages still survive - otherwise the building along the lane is largely twentieth century.

Lodge Lane was the home of John Parr, the first British soldier to be killed in the First World War, and the actor David Jason.

Post by Lynne Hqapgood: Hutton Grove, N12

I have a question rather than a comment. When was 80 Hutton Grove built? My parents, Eddie and Margaret Hapgood, lived at 80 Hutton Grove from 1934 until sometime during the war,and I would love to know if they moved into a new-build house during the big suburban expansion in the 1930s. Does anyone out there know?! I visited very recently to see the road and the frontage of the house for the first time.

Feature: What is it like to go deaf?

Broken down into numerical form, deafness is a scary-near-epidemic phenomenon. In the UK 11 million people have hearing loss, with the figure likely to rise to 15.6 million - or one in five of us - by 2035.

Whetstone

It is thought that Whetstone was named after the stone used to sharpen knives and other tools, a chunk of which is located on the High Road, on the pavement outside the Griffin pub.

Legend has it that stone was used by soldiers about to fight in the Battle of Barnet.

Whetstone was an important staging post for stagecoaches going north from London. There has been an inn on the site of the present Griffin pub for centuries, though the present building dates from 1928.

When frequently combined with its neighbour, this combined area is the 63rd richest area in the UK (2008) - an acclamation which can be credited to Totteridge Lane, a long road home to many multi-millionaires.
