Park Farm, Finchley give much of its land to the later Hampstead Garden Surburb.


One of the last occupiers of Park Farm was the circus proprietor Lord’ George Sanger, who retired there in 1904.

Sanger was an English showman and circus proprietor who set up the enterprise with his brother John. The first show was in February 1854 at the King’s Lynn Charter Fair in Norfolk. His circus visited over 200 towns in a nine month season, giving two shows a day, every day except Sunday.

In 1905 he sold off his zoo and some circus effects - these were auctioned by circus auctioneer Tom Norman. His descendants continued the circus in operation until the 1960s.

While he owned Park Farm, he allowed the circus animals to winter on his land. An elderly resident of Denman Drive - constructed in 1908 on what was once Westminster Abbey’s land - used to recall elephants grazing’ in the field between Big Wood and Little Wood, before Denman Drive North and Denman Drive South - constructed in 1912 on what was once the Bishop’s land - were completed.

Sanger was notoriously murdered with a hatchet by a farm hand - Herbert Charles Cooper - in 1911. The murderer’s motive was never established and the case was something of a cause celebre at the time. Cooper later committed suicide.

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.

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.

East End Road, N2

East End Road, linking East End and the southern section of the Great North Road with Church End, was the main east-west road in Finchley.

Although apparently not so named until the late 19th century, it probably dated from the 14th-century growth of East End. Hunts Green, mid-way along the road, was mentioned in 1437 and Piryton Lane, named in 1423 and 1485, may have been the western section of the road near Church End.

Long Lane, named in 1719, ran from Ballards Lane to Bulls Lane. The eastern section was called Broad Lane in 1814. A short lane led from Bibbesworth manor-house to the church by 1657 and was called The Avenue by 1897. Several roads linked Long Lane with East End Road. The most westerly was Squires, formerly Place, Lane, which ran north from Bibbesworth manor-house and continued across Long Lane to the common and eventually to the Great North Road. Its northern section, Short Lane in 1657 and c. 1867, was probably the Heybourne Lane mentioned in the 1380s. Green Lane - as known as Philips Lane joined the central portion of East End Road to Long Lane. Bulls Lane, which after the building of Holy Trinity church in 1846 was called Church Lane, ran from the eastern section of East End Road across Long Lane to the common and the Great North Road.
