Rotherwick Road, like Corringham Road, links Golders Green with Hampstead Garden Suburb.


It was appreciated that the new Northern Line would be an important transport hub for the Suburb. A station had been planned for a site at the top of Hampstead Way close to the old weather boarded farmhouse of Wyldes. This prospect caused angst to resident Henrietta Barnett, fearing bland suburbanisation - so much so that the idea for Hampstead Garden Suburb was born. When Golders Green became the only station, designer of the Suburb, Raymond Unwin made it a high priority to build up the approach from it.

Rotherwick Road is entered from Finchley Road by the first of Unwin’s ’gates’: four large houses, three on one side and one on the other in an intricate dog-legged plan, so that the Finchley Road street frontage is dramatically set back.
