Post by Lynne Hqapgood: Hutton Grove, N12

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: Appearing on television programmes about television programmes
Well here we are again and I must admit I hope by the time you read this it will have cooled down a bit. It a lovely summer but a bit too hot to sit in my garden for long, so I have retreated indoors to write this column but I wish I had air conditioning. I am aware that these articles now appear in several newspapers covering a large area but I tend to forget they also appear online so can be read anywhere. For instance, I had a nice email from Larry in Los Angeles who is a distinguished musical director for stage and screen productions. He was remarking on my memories that appeared in this column a couple of weeks ago about a star-studded awards ceremony I attended in London many years ago. Can you believe it but Larry was the musical director for t

Whetstone

It is thought that Whetstone was named after the stone used to sharpen knives and other tools, a chunk of which is located on the High Road, on the pavement outside the Griffin pub.

Legend has it that stone was used by soldiers about to fight in the Battle of Barnet.

Whetstone was an important staging post for stagecoaches going north from London. There has been an inn on the site of the present Griffin pub for centuries, though the present building dates from 1928.

When frequently combined with its neighbour, this combined area is the 63rd richest area in the UK (2008) - an acclamation which can be credited to Totteridge Lane, a long road home to many multi-millionaires.
