Pedestrian underpass, Apex Corner in the 1950s.

The A1 (Barnet Bypass) and A41 (Watford Bypass) converge at Apex Corner roundabout.

Apex Corner was the site of the Apex Garage, built beside the roundabout - itself part of a 1920–4 road improvement programme. Although it is still officially named Northway Circus, the garage, now gone, gave its name to the area.

A landmark pub, The Royal Scot, stood at the junction - this turned into a Kentucky Fried Chicken and then later a hotel. Still later, a McDonalds arrived there.

The 100 square metres that covers the A1 and A41 junction and nearby in Selvage Lane, the M1 running under a bridge, was for a while in the 1990s the UK’s busiest square kilometer, measured by traffic flow.

From the Star Wars empire to selling the kitchen sink: Elstree Studios in the 1980s and 90s
Well once again I find myself looking at a blank sheet of paper or a screen as nowadays I send this as an email to the office, who edit it and write the headline to accompany my words. This column has now entered its 42nd year and appears in more papers than in any decade to date, not to mention in that strange world of cyberspace.

Mill Hill

Mill Hill lies along The Ridgeway, with green belt either side.

There are a number of areas of Mill Hill, but the core is Mill Hill Village.

Partingdale and Burtonhole form a distinct valley north of The Ridgeway. North is Folly Farm and Folly Brook, a tributary of the Dollis Brook, running west to east. Between The Ridgeway and Folly Brook are the National Institute for Medical Research, Burtonhole Farm, a garden centre called Finchley Nurseries, and several sports grounds.

Arrandene Open Space and Featherstone Hill is a large open space which is bordered by Wise Lane, Wills Grove, Milespit Hill and The Ridgeway. While there are many open spaces in the area, Arrandene is unique because of its many open fields, meadows and woodland. The open fields were originally hay meadows which provided feed for the horses pulling carriages north to Barnet and beyond.

There is a non-denominational Mill Hill Cemetery, formerly known as the 'Paddington District Cemetery'. The 1960s pop singer Billy Fury is buried there, and there are also some Dutch war graves. To the southwest is a small suburban district called Poets' Corner, and to the north an old estate, now a nature reserve, Moat Mount Open Space.

With Mill Hill Village as the core of Mill Hill, railway expansion in the nineteenth century brought the developments of Mill Hill Broadway and Mill Hill East, both having separate centres from Mill Hill itself.
