Where Frognal meets the Finchley Road, there is an indiscernible dip...

The road called Frognal follows the course of a long-buried river, the Kilbourne. Downstream this becomes the Westbourne, one of the major "lost" rivers of London.

Finchley Road And Frognal

Finchley Road & Frognal railway station lies on the London Overground network.

It was originally part of the Hampstead Junction Railway - built in 1860 to provide an alternative route from the conjested Primrose Hill route into Euston. This railway ran from Willesden Junction to Camden Road and involved the construction, starting just east of Finchley Road & Frognal station, of a tunnel to run underneath Hampstead's hill.

In turn the Hampstead Junction Railway became part of the North London Railway and, after nationalisation, the North London Line. It is now on the London Overground. The station is about five minutes' walk (400 metres) from Finchley Road tube station, and is marked as an official out-of-system interchange between the two.

John Rocque Map of Hampstead (1762).
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map of Hampstead covers an area stretching from the edge in the northwest of present-day Dollis Hill to Islington in the southeast.
