Golders Green Road - known by many other names during its history - lies along an ancient road from London to Hendon.

Golders Green, historically a rural area, saw drastic changes and developments over the years.

In 1751, Golders Green Road had two inns, the Hoop (which lent its name to Hoop Lane) and the White Swan. There were approximately 16 houses along the road with small gardens.

By the late 18th Century, Golders Green had already started to evolve. It was described as having "many ornamental villas and cottages surrounded with plantations." Before 1828, detached houses had extended on both sides of the road as far as Brent Bridge, indicating further suburban development.

In 1874, it was recorded that the green areas of Golders Green, which were manorial waste on both sides of Golders Green Road, were no longer being preserved. The Prince Albert pub had appeared by the 1850s.

During the late 19th Century, Golders Green gained a distinctive character from the villas situated in wooded grounds, including Alba Lodge, Golders Lodge, Gloucester Lodge, the Oaks, Grove House, Highfield and Woodstock House. These villas began to disappear rapidly with the growth of suburban housing after the extension of the Underground.

During the 20th century, the character of Golders Green Road drastically changed as the street became the commercial heart of the new suburb.

Polygon Buildings
Following the demolition of the Polygon, and prior to the construction of Oakshott Court in 1974, 4 tenement type blocks of flats were built on the site at Clarendon Sq/Phoenix Rd called Polygon Buildings. These were primarily for people working for the Midland Railway and subsequently British Rail. My family lived for 5 years in Block C in the 1950s. It seems that very few photos exist of these buildings.

Road construction and houses completed
New Charleville Circus road layout shown on Stanford’s Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs 1879 with access via West Hill only.

Plans showing street numbering were recorded in 1888 so we can concluded the houses in Charleville Circus were built by this date.

War damage reinstatement plans of No’s 11 & 13 Aldine Street
Whilst clearing my elderly Mothers house of general detritus, I’ve come across original plans (one on acetate) of No’s 11 & 13 Aldine Street. Might they be of interest or should I just dispose of them? There are 4 copies seemingly from the one single acetate example. Seems a shame to just junk them as the level of detail is exquisite. No worries if of no interest, but thought I’d put it out there.
