Bury Farm, north of Edgware, with buildings from the 17th century, probably dates back to the 13th century.

The area was mostly forest until the 1200s and then mixed agriculture until the end of 16th century. In the 17th century, Edgware became a small market town due to the production of hay, and the selling of fattened cattle driven from other parts of England.

For many centuries it has been known as Bury Farm and, although it was considered the centre of Edgware Manor, and was where the manorial lord would lodge when in Edgware, it was not the manor house as such.

In February 1735 the farm was robbed by the infamous Gregory Gang, which included Richard Turpin. They assaulted the 70-year-old farmer, Mr Lawrence, and raped one of the maids.

Nearby Edgwarebury Open Space started with the purchase of 29.5 acres by Hendon Rural District Council and Middlesex County Council in July 1930. The space was opened as a recreation ground in 1932, after £7000 had been spent on converting the land into a park.

Adjoining, and to the southwest, is a portion of Metropolitan Open Space, known locally as the Edgware Roughs on which are the remaining brick piles of what was planned to be a Northern Line extention connecting Edgware to Bushey, with a station called Brockley Hill.

A section of the M1 motorway north of Bury farm opened in 1967.

The manor has been held by All Souls College, Oxford, since 1442 but in 2013 it was announced that they wanted to lease the land around Bury Farm to a group who wanted to build an 18 hole golf course.

Edgware

Edgware tube station is a London Underground station in Edgware, in the London Borough of Barnet, in north London. The station is the terminus of the ’’Edgware branch’’ of the Northern Line.

Edgware (sometimes Edgeware) was an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex. Edgware is a Saxon name meaning Ecgi’s weir. Ecgi’s was a Saxon and the weir relates to a pond where Ecgi’s people would catch fish.

The Romans made pottery at Brockley Hill, and is thought by some to be the site of Sulloniacis. To the north west was Canons Park erected by Duke of Chandos.

From 1932 - 1965, Edgware was in the Borough of Hendon.

The majority of Edgware nowadays is a ward in the London Borough of Barnet represented by three councillors. The western edge of the Edgware Road is in the London Borough of Harrow.

It is principally a shopping and residential area and is more widely known as being a northern terminus of the Northern Line. There is a bus garage, a shopping centre called The Mall (formerly known as The Broadwalk), and a library. There is a large hospital, Edgware Hospital. There are two streams, Edgware Brook and Deans Brook, which are tributaries of the River Brent.

Edgware tube station was opened on 18 August 1924 as the terminus of the second phase of the Underground Group's extension of the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway from Golders Green. It was designed by architect Stanley Heaps. There are three platforms, an island lying east of a single platform (platform 1). A trainshed covers the island platforms (2 and 3).

Despite having already had a railway station since 1867 (Edgware station on the London and North Eastern Railway), Edgware was, in 1924, still very much a village in character. The new Underground station was built on the north edge of the village in open fields and, as intended, the new line stimulated rapid suburban expansion along its length. By the end of the decade, what had formerly been fields was quickly being covered with new housing.

The site of the station is very close to the location intended for the unbuilt Watford and Edgware Railway's (W&ER's) station, which was intended to be built on a branch from the existing single-track LNER branch before the terminus and run through to Watford Junction via Bushey.
