  • Here are the details of maps for North Finchley:

  • Middlesex Sheet 6.16a North Finchley 1894 - published 1985; intro by Pamela Taylor. ISBN.978-0-85054-040-6
  • Middlesex Sheet 6.16b North Finchley 1911 - published 1997; intro by Pamela Taylor. ISBN.978-0-85054-929-4

    We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area developed across the years. Each covers the same area, from the Dollis Brook on the west eastward to Friary Park in Friern Barnet, and from Christ Church Avenue northward to Woodside Lane. The Great North Road runs north-south through the centre of the map and the main interest is the busy development around it. The GNR (later Northern line) High Barnet branch is also shown, with Woodside Park station. Features include St James church, Christ Church, Dunger Place, Woodside Grange, and several farms. By 1911 the area is more completely urban, with several tramways and a tram depot off Ballards Lane. There are several directory extracts, those on the 1911 map including Derby Avenue, Friern Park, Gainsborough Road, High Road, Holden Road, Hutton Grove and Woodhouse Road.

    The map links up with Middlesex Sheets 6.12 Whetstone to the north, 6.15 Mill Hill Village to the west, 7.13 Friern Barnet to the east and London Sheet 5 Mid Finchley to the south.
