Green Lane is a lost road of Finchley.

Also known as Philips Lane in its history, it joined the central portion of East End Road to Long Lane.

Between 1808 and 1835 the lane was the location of a house rented as Finchley’s workhouse and was called Workhouse Lane as a consequence. A bridge over the railway, built in the 1860s, was removed in the 1960s.

The building of the North Circular Road in the 1920s paralleled Green Lane to its west.

Briar Close was partly laid along its course and a remnant, unnamed section exists beyond the railway.

Angel & Trumpet, Stepney Green
The Angel & Trumpet Public House in Stepney Green was run by my ancestors in the 1930’s. Unfortunately, it was a victim on WWII and was badly damaged and subsequently demolished. I have one photograph that I believe to bethe pub, but it doesn’t show much more that my Great Aunt cleaning the steps.

Blackfriars (1959 - 1965)
I lived in Upper Ground from 1959 to 1964 I was 6 years old my parents Vince and Kitty run the Pub The Angel on the corner of Upper Ground and Bodies Bridge. I remember the ceiling of the cellar was very low and almost stretched the length of Bodies Bridge. The underground trains run directly underneath the pub. If you were down in the cellar when a train was coming it was quite frightening

East Finchley

East Finchley is a suburban development, five miles north north-west of Charing Cross.

The land on which East Finchley now stands was once part of the Bishop of London’s hunting ground. More recently, it was home to some grand ’country’ estates of wealthy Londoners, from which several roads take their names (e.g. Summerlee Avenue, Park Hall Road). At one time East Finchley was referred to as ’East End’.

East Finchley underground station, first opened in 1863 by the Edgware, Highgate and London Railway, is topped by a famous statue of an archer, created in the Art Deco style, and pointing his arrow towards the other end of the tunnel which starts south of the station and runs all the way to the end of the Northern Line at Morden. This 27.8 km tunnel was for many years the longest in the world. There was originally an arrow at Morden Station to match the archer at East Finchley, but this was stolen not long after the station was opened.
