Grove Farm changed usage between a farm and a house before being overwhelmed by suburbia.

By 1754 there were about 16 houses with small gardens at Golders Green, most of them on small inclosures from the waste. In 1814 Golders Green contained ’many ornamental villas and cottages, surrounded with plantations’, and in 1828 detached houses spread on both sides of the road as far as Brent bridge. Grove Farm - or Grove House - was one of these.

The villas in their wooded grounds, which gave Golders Green its special character, disappeared rapidly with the growth of suburban housing after the extension of the Underground.

The name of the building was preserved in the road name The Grove which was built over the top of the original house.

Scepticism persists over Grenfell death toll despite Met’s final figure
Rumours about hundreds of victims quickly took hold after blaze, and mistrust of officials remains potentIn the fraught days after the Grenfell Tower fire in June, controversy over the official number of dead worsened already tense relations between officials and residents.A day after the fire, the death toll released by the police stood at 17, and the next day it jumped to 30, at a time when a quick count of the photographs of the missing stuck to the walls and fences surrounding the building suggested the real number was much higher. Related: All the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire named so far Related: Grenfell five months on: ’They are not the same children as they were’ Continue reading...

Golders Green

Golders Green was a rural hamlet at the crossroads of Finchley Road and North End Road until the arrival of the tube in 1907.

Golders Green station was opened by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR, now part of the Northern Line) on 22 June 1907. It was one of the railway's two northern terminals (the other being at Archway) and was also the site of the railway's depot.

Before World War I plans were made to extend the CCE&HR north from Golders Green to Hendon and Edgware to open up new areas of the Middlesex countryside to development and to create a source of new passengers. The war postponed the construction of the extension and work did not begin until 12 June 1922. The first section of the extension, as far as Hendon Central opened on 19 November 1923.


LOCATIONS ON THE UNDERGROUND MAP
Golders Green:   Golders Green was a rural hamlet at the crossroads of Finchley Road and North End Road until the arrival of the tube in 1907.
Golders Green crossroads:   The name Golders Green apparently derives from that of a local family, the Goodyers, and was first recorded in 1612. The hamlet of Golders Green originated as a group of cottages on waste ground on each side of the main road. In 1754, manorial waste at Golders Green stretched for some distance on either side of the main road from Hampstead.
Golders Green crossroads:   Golders Green crossroads was formed when the new Finchley Road crossed North End Road in the 1830s.
Golders Green Hippodrome:   The Golders Green Hippodrome, was opened in 1913. Built next to Golders Green station, it was built as a 3000 seat music hall by Bertie Crewe.
Golders Lodge:   The villas in their wooded grounds, which gave Golders Green its special character, disappeared rapidly with the growth of suburban housing after the extension of the Underground; they included Alba Lodge, Gloucester Lodge, the Oaks, and Grove House.
Hodford Farm:   The Hodford and Cowhouse estate consisted of a compact block of lands stretching from the Hampstead border to a point north of Golders Green station and from Cricklewood to Golders Hill.
Hoop Lane Cemetery:   In 1895 a Jewish Cemetery was established on Hoop Lane, with the first burial in 1897.
Ionic Cinema:   The Ionic Cinema was built in the early days of Golders Green's suburban development.
Saint Alban's church:   The church of St Alban, Golders Green, was built as a chapel-of-ease to All Saints’, Childs Hill, in 1910. It became the centre of a new parish taken from that of All Saints in 1922.
The Oaks:   The Oaks was a large house situated on North End Road (later Golders Green Road)
Woodstock House:   Woodstock House was a large stuccoed house, dating from the early 19th century in Golders Green.


PHOTOS OF THE AREA
