A quick tour around Barnet its districts

Of all the boroughs of London you are perhaps not likely to list Barnet among the top ones as it is not a central borough. The area is located in North London and parts of it are actually in North-West London. The fact that it might be a distant destination doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have anything nice to offer. In fact the London Borough of Barnet is the second most populated borough with more than 300 000 inhabitants. Additionally the size of its territory allows it to take the 4th place in London. If this alone is not enough to make you gather your things and move to Barnet then we will give you a few more reasons below. Once you see Hendon town hall which is used by Barnet council you will realise how much history this area has. There are also a number of Grade I listed buildings (mainly churches) designed by Edwin Lutyens. Here are more interesting things about some of the districts of Barnet.

The area is in fact pretty interesting to visit

Mill Hill is what is called a ribbon development as its houses are built on both sides of the Ridgeway. The name comes from Myllehill which means “hill with a windmill”. The first recordings of it are from the 16th century. As the area marked its development during the 19th century, Carl Zeiss established an outlet in Mill Hill in 1894. Even today there are a few plans for the “intensification” of Mill Hill with the main goal of bringing more people and businesses to the area. This will surely mean that the moving services of Mill Hill top class removal companies will definitely be needed in the long term. The Observatory of the University of London is located in NW7. It used to be an old estate which was later turned into a botanical garden.

If you feel like travelling all the way to the northern most parts of London then Monken Hadley is for you

St. Mary Church - Monken HadleyMonken Hadley is basically right on the edge of Greater London. This little village looks pretty ancient but in a good way. It will impress you with some fantastic Medieval architecture. For instance the St. Mary Church looks like a scene from a computer game. This is mainly because it has stood in Monken Hadley since the 15th century. The church has been heavily renovated, however, and it has a number of architectural details and additions from other eras. Little Pipers on Hadley Green Road is an estate with great cultural heritage. The overall character of the EN5 area is very quiet and laid back.

New Barnet is a relatively large settlement within the Borough of Barnet. This is mainly due to the fact that in 1850 a station serving the Great Northern Railway was built there. This led to the rapid increase of population. Nowadays the main retail area is again situated around the railway station. The Alexandra is the most popular public house in EN4. Big companies such as Tesco and Asda are trying to move in and are threatening the existence of smaller structures and stores. Surely these large firms have already figured out a way to perform their professional full scale business relocations in New Barnet.

New Southgate is right between the three neighbouring boroughs of Enfield, Barnet and Haringey. It used to be a hamlet of Betstille. This name was gone for some time but during the 20th centuries it was brought back by Betstyle Road and Betstyle Circus. Around the New Southgate, N11 area you can see Colney Hatch Park which is now known under a different name as the “Colney Hatch” part was removed. The suburb nowadays is not very crowded but Barnet removal companies are constantly on people’s disposal in the area.

Tally Ho Corner is as old as North Finchley and this is actually where the district is cantered. The N12 area is perfect if you are looking to move in to a nice home in the middle of a residential area surrounded by beautiful restaurants. On the other hand you can simply put everyone in your family on a van and just drive to North Finchley for a great time. Some structures in the Edwardian style can be seen nearby Woodside Park and Nether Street.
