Finchley Court was one of the developments built on the site of large houses along Ballards Lane.

Fallow Cottage was sold in 1939 to Wood & Wallers, who built flats on its site. Willow Lodge on the east side of Ballards Lane was pulled down in 1929. On the opposite side Maple House and Elm House were for sale in 1934 and made way for the flats of Finchley Court in 1935.

Bay Tree Cottage, already set among shops in Ballards Lane, was offered in 1936 and replaced by Woolworth’s in 1938. Court House at the northern corner of Nether Street was sold in 1936 and flats were built there a year later. Rocklands, next to Dollis brook, was offered for sale in an area ’ripe for development’ in 1938.

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.

The Paul Welsh column: Get up and dance, or look at your mobile phone?
Hello again my fellow groovers. I hope you are still hip to the beat and work out each morning by dancing the mashed potato or the twist to keep those limbs in good order. I am in a nostalgic mood having just attended a great 1960s music concert at the St Albans Arena with the original artists.

Labour is not riddled with anti-Semitism, but it’s not a Tory myth either. So what is true?

When Mark Seddon and I started to write our book about Jeremy Corbyn and Labour, we were advised to keep away from anti-Semitism. Anything we wrote would be misrepresented, we were told; and it has been.

North Finchley

North Finchley is centred on Tally Ho Corner, the junction of the roads to East Finchley, Finchley Central and Whetstone.

The name of the whole of the modern area covering North Finchley and neighbouring Whetstone was North End, a name first used in 1462.

The rapid enclosure of the countryside in the first years of the nineteenth century meant the end of Finchley Common in 1816, opening up North Finchley from urbanisation - this still took a while nevertheless.

21 cottages were built in Lodge Lane during 1824 and by the 1830s there were other houses - even a chapel by 1837.

By 1839 North Finchley had a blacksmith (on Lodge Lane and not the High Road).

In 1851 there was a regular bus service from the ’Torrington’ to Charing Cross and next came the local railway lines. Christ Church was opened in 1870 and a new parish was formed in 1872.

In 1905 the Metropolitan Electric Tramways started a route between Highgate and Whetstone - a tram depot was opened in Woodberry Grove. Trams and buses together promoted North Finchley’s development.
