By 1754 the modern Coppetts Road ran from Crouch End north towards Colney Hatch.

By 1846 it was linked by a track south of Bounds Green brook to Colney Hatch Lane. At the northern end Coppetts Road met a route running westward from Colney Hatch shortly before it forked into two tracks crossing Finchley Common, later Woodhouse Road and Summers Lane. In the late 15th and early 16th centuries many copyhold lanes apparently led to individual holdings.

South of Bounds Green Brook there was only Coppetts Farm between 1783 and 1846.

My mother and her sister were born at 9 Windsor Terrace
My mother, Millie Haring (later Miller) and her sister Yetta Haring (later Freedman) were born here in 1922 and 1923. With their parents and older brother and sister, they lived in two rooms until they moved to Stoke Newington in 1929. She always said there were six rooms, six families, a shared sink on the first floor landing and a toilet in the backyard.

Harmondsworth (1939 - 1965)
I lived in a house (Lostwithiel) on the Bath Road opposite the junction with Tythe Barn Lane, now a hotel site. Initially, aircraft used one of the diagonal runways directly in line with our house. I attended Sipson Primary School opposite the Three Magpies and celebrated my 21st birthday at The Peggy Bedford in 1959.

Shortlands Close, DA17
Shortlands Close and the flats along it were constructed in the mid-1990s. Prior to this, the area was occupied by semi-detached houses with large gardens, which dated from the post-war period and were built on the site of Railway Farm. The farm and its buildings spanned the length of Abbey Road, on the south side of the North Kent Line railway tracks.

Muswell Hill

Muswell Hill - a little bit respectable

The name Muswell is believed to come from a natural spring or well (the Mossy Well), said to have miraculous properties. The traditional story tells that a Scottish king was cured of disease after drinking the water. The area became a place of pilgrimage for healing during medieval times. The River Moselle, which has its source in Muswell Hill and Highgate, derives its name from this district; it was originally known as the Mosa or Mosella.

Solidly middle class and suburban, Muswell Hill comes with all the necessary trimmings: double income families, Range Rovers, designer-clad mothers, and au-pair girls by the score. Sober and respectable Edwardian terraces, many with lovingly preserved period details and well-tended gardens, are the order of the day.

The hill-top location offers wonderful views over the city; and the steep gradient gives the place an elevated air which sets it apart from the less refined places closer to sea level and more familiar with the bustle and grit of the capital.

As befits so well-established an area, Muswell Hill is well supplied with shops and restaurants, cafes and wine-bars. The Broadway is the main drag and has the usual High Street suspects, but there are also good specialist outlets selling books, antiques, hand-made toys, furniture and the like.

In 1964, two young Muswell Hill residents, the brothers Ray and Dave Davies, formed The Kinks. Categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. The Davies' parents' home at 6 Denmark Terrace, Fortis Green, remains a magnet for rock music tourists.

In March 2013 Muswell Hill was named one of the five most desirable places to live in London in The Sunday Times 'Best Places To Live' guide.
