Post by Pauline McQuade: Golders Lodge

Golders Lodge was built by Captain Alexander Wedderburn MacKenzie of the 67th Regiment of Foot. The ghost of Golders Lodge story probably came about when the body of his long dead sister Hannah was discovered in a bathroom of the rambling house. He had performed some sort of ceremony over the body but had neglected to bury her, this was then swiftly arranged. He was declared insane and died in Pembroke House, Hackney in November 1865.

I have a question rather than a comment. When was 80 Hutton Grove built? My parents, Eddie and Margaret Hapgood, lived at 80 Hutton Grove from 1934 until sometime during the war,and I would love to know if they moved into a new-build house during the big suburban expansion in the 1930s. Does anyone out there know?! I visited very recently to see the road and the frontage of the house for the first time.

Post by John Dye: Cool Oak Lane, NW9

I lived at Queensbury Road, Kingsbury during World War II and used to play regularly along the edge of the Welsh Harp. About halfway along Cool Oak Lane on the south side was a pond we used to call Froggy Pond. It was the only place I ever saw a water scorpion, Nepa cinerea.
At the end of the war, all the street air raid shelters were knocked down and the rubble was piled up on the ground south of the Cool Oak Lane bridge, on the Hendon side. I remember that this heap of rubble became infested with rats and I used to watch them from the bridge. I was told that an old house on the south side of Cool Oak Lane (Woodfield House?) was once owned by the wife of Horatio Nelson. I think it later became the nurseries for plants grown for the Hendon parks.

I lived at 2 Rudall Crescent until myself and my family moved out in 1999. I once met a lady in a art fair up the road who was selling old photos of the area and was very knowledgeable about the area history, collecting photos over the years. She told me that before the current houses were built, there was a large manor house , enclosed by a large area of land. She told me there had been a fire there. Im trying to piece together the story and find out what was on the land before the crescent was built. This website is very interesting.

Hendon Central

Hendon Central tube station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line.

Hendon Central, like all stations north from Golders Green, is a surface station (although the tracks enter twin tunnels a short distance further north on the way to Colindale). When it was built it stood in lonely glory amid fields, as one writer puts it, south of the old village of Hendon, which has since been swallowed up by London's suburbs.

The station is a Grade II listed building, designed in a neo-Georgian style by Stanley Heaps, who also designed Brent Cross tube station in a similar style, with a prominent portico featuring a Doric colonnade.

The fact that the area was largely undeveloped allowed a hitherto unusual degree of coordination between the station and the surrounding buildings that were constructed over the next few years. The station was intended to be the centre and a key architectural feature of a new suburban town; it faces a circus 73 metres in diameter that is intersected by four approach roads which provide access to all parts of Hendon and the surrounding areas beyond. For many years this was a roundabout known as 'Central Circus'; however it is now a crossroads controlled by traffic signals.

Writing in 1932, William Passingham commended the integrated approach taken at Hendon Central as an outstanding example of the co-ordination of road-planning with passenger station requirements. He noted, only nine years after the station opened, that it had already become the centre of an ever-widening cluster of new houses.


LOCATIONS ON THE UNDERGROUND MAP
Brent Cross:   Brent Cross tube station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line, between Hendon Central and Golders Green. The Brent Cross shopping centre is nearby.
Brent Street:   The largest hamlet of Hendon parish was Brent Street. It retained its identity until the late 19th, when building linked it with Church End and the Burroughs.
Foster House:   Foster House and Brent Lodge were two 18th-century brick houses at the corner of Butcher's Lane and Brent Street. Butcher's Lane later became Queen’s Road
Hasmonean Primary School:   Voluntary aided school (Primary) which accepts students between the ages of 3 and 11.
Hendon Central:   Hendon Central tube station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line.
Hendon Central circus:   By 1906, Sir Audley Neeld was building on the land - the future Hendon Central - that had been Renter’s Farm.
Hendon Park:   Hendon Park, totalling 12 hectares, between Queens Road (formerly Butchers Lane) and Shire Hall Lane was created by Hendon Urban District Council in 1903.
Renters Farm:   Near to where Brent Cross Shopping Centre is today was a farm called Renter's. It was situated in Shirehall Lane close to Shire Hall, Hendon.
Shire Hall:   In the lane leading to Renter’s Farm, Shire Hall was mentioned in 1712, rebuilt in the Renaissance manner c. 1850, and demolished c.1920.
Wentworth Tutorial College:   Other independent school which accepts students between the ages of 14 and 19. Admissions policy: Non-selective.


PHOTOS OF THE AREA
Brent Cross roundabout:   A picture of the Brent Cross junction taken in 1947. Brent Cross junction was formed at the junction of the new roads Hendon Way (A41) and North Circular Road and built in the mid-1920s
Brent Cross sewage works:   At the beginning of the 20th century the whole Brent Cross area was a veritable moot point for waterways and sewage systems. Hendon Urban District Council had sewage farms, initially on the southbank of the Brent and later on the north. The site was closed in the 1930s, the area’s sewage being pumped down to Mogden Purification Works in Isleworth
Brent station:   This photograph, from the collection of the London Transport museum, shows the future site of Brent Cross station on the Edgware branch of the Northern line
Hendon Central (1923):   Photographed in 1923, this stretch of Butchers Lane would soon become Hendon Central Circus and have Watford Way built along the route of the old lane.
Hendon Central (1928):   Photographed in 1928, this stretch of Watford Way at Hendon Central Circus had recently been built along ancient Butchers Lane and shops were rapidly lining its sides. The United Dairies occupied the domed building, a prestigeous site.
Suburbia awaits (1908):   This is a view of The Homestead from the end of the unfinished Sinclair Grove, NW11
