A little bit of history

Formerly an ancient parish of Middlesex, the name Finchley was first recorded in the 13th Century, by which point the area's woodlands had started to give way to farmland. By the 15th and 16th Century, the areas to the east of the parish were cleared to form Finchley Common, which the medieval Great North Road ran through ' notorious for highwaymen right up until the early 19th Century. Finchley has officially been considered part of Greater London since 1965.
