Totteridge is an area of the London Borough of Barnet in north London. It is a mixture of suburban development and open land (including some farmland) situated 9 miles (14.5 km) north north-west of Charing Cross and is located in postal districts N20 and N12. The name is a corruption of “Tatta’s Ridge”, Tatta presumably being a local Anglo-Saxon notable. The ridge is the high ground between the valleys of the Dollis Brook and Folly Brook.
Totteridge was a civil parish of Hertfordshire covering an area of 1,604 acres and formed part of a thin protrusion into Middlesex. It became part of Barnet Rural District in 1894, and then formed part of Barnet Urban District from 1914 to 1965. In 1965, the parish and urban district were abolished by the London Government Act 1963 and its area became part of the London Borough of Barnet. In 1901 the parish had a population of 844 and by 1951 it had risen to 4,500. The boundary to the north and east is the Dollis Brook and the boundary to the south is that river’s tributary, the Folly Brook. While these rivers define the area covered by the residents’ association, the southern part of the area (with postcode N12 rather than N20) is generally regarded as being in Woodside Park.
The main road is the A5109, which runs roughly east-west. The western part is called Totteridge Common, the next part is called Totteridge Village, the central part by the village green is called Totteridge Green, and the eastern part is called Totteridge Lane; the Lane continues into Whetstone, terminating at its junction with High Road Whetstone (the A1000). At the western end of Totteridge Common is a set of traffic lights; the road to the north from these lights, Hendon Wood Lane, is just to the west of the western boundary.
Totteridge has many spacious detached properties in a green setting that are highly valued; some of them are among the most expensive houses in London. Thus its past and present residents include the rich and famous, such as Arsene Wenger, Frankie Vaughan, Des O’Connor, Cliff Richard, Mickie Most, Hank Marvin, David Dein and many top footballers. More modest housing, much of it semi-detached, predominates at the eastern end of Totteridge. Read more…
