Whetstone Stray is parkland created during the twentieth century from former farmland.

’Stray’ in this context is a common or piece of unenclosed land on which there is a common right of pasture, so historically animals would have been brought here to graze. Whetstone Stray is part of a green corridor consisting of meadows and a brook, with the Dollis Valley Green Walk passing through.

Meadows are managed under a cut and lift grassland scheme.

No, it?s not the parade of shops you mention, it?s Middle Row which was demolished in 1889 and was situated to the south of the parish church literally in the middle of the High Street!

We lived here from 1991 until 2008. Southgate and Oakwood stations within walking distance - Oakwood the nearest. A lovely, green and spacious area with Trent Country Park a few minutes walk (opposite Oakwood Station). Good transport links to London/Enfield/Hertfordshire. Unfortunately the opening of Asda Supermarket led to a decline of the area with many of the shops closing. When we left in 2008, many of the shops were open and it was a thriving high street. Iconic Art Deco Southgate station is a sight to see. Even Oakwood station has some Art Deco features - the old newsagent kiosk. Southagate is full of history too.

There was a large dairy when we moved there, but overtime this closed and was replaced with houses (where isn?t?). Enfield Town and Gentleman?s Row are worth a visit. First cash machine at the Barclays Bank in Enfield Town

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.

Totteridge

Totteridge is an old English village, and a mixture of suburban development and open land, situated 8 miles north north-west of Charing Cross.

This area was called Tataridge in the 13th Century. It may have been named after someone called Tata. The ridge is the high ground between the valleys of the Dollis Brook and Folly Brook.

Over the centuries the rural qualities of Totteridge have attracted well-to-do families. Cardinal Manning was born at Copped Hall in Totteridge in 1808.

With the opening of the Great Northern Railway station in 1872, late-Victorian and Edwardian mansions were built around the old village. In line with overall trends in the late 1930s, following the conversion of the railway station (in operation from 1872 until 1941) into a London Underground station (from 1940) on the Northern line, smaller properties were built within walking distance of the station (Totteridge and Whetstone tube station). In 1968 much of Totteridge was designated a Conservation Area, and no major developments have taken place since then.

Totteridge was a civil parish of Hertfordshire covering an area of 1,604 acres and formed part of a thin protrusion into Middlesex. It became part of Barnet Rural District and had a parish council from 1894 to 1914. It then formed part of Barnet Urban District from 1914 to 1965. In 1965, the parish and urban district were abolished by the London Government Act 1963 and the area was transferred from Hertfordshire to Greater London, to become part of the London Borough of Barnet. In 1901 the parish had a population of 844 and by 1951 it had risen to 4500.
