West Finchley History and General Information
Local residents have compiled a history of the neighbourhood from records and from the oral histories of local residents.
Within the neighbourhood, Cedar Court (pictured above), is a Grade II listed building.
The now demolished Brent Lodge that stood on the land between Hamilton Way, Finchley Way, Penstemon Close and Nether Street was home to Augustus Cooper who left the land to the people of Finchley in his will of 1939. Previously Brent Lodge had been home to an experiment in shared living in the early 20th century.
