History of Finchley Road
The area of Finchley Road is to the north of London, in the borough of Camden. It is 6 miles from the centre of London. The original name Finchley New Road, was built as a turnpike road from the late 1820s to early 1830s. This proved to be a convenient by-pass to the existing route, north from London, through Hampstead. At this time, the road was bordered with fields.
In 1826, the Finchley Road Act was passed, and in 1835, the new turnpike road was completed. In the early Victorian era, many grand houses were built along the length of Finchley Road, especially near Fortune Green, Childs Hill and Golders Green.
Around 1850, the Atlas Line, a stagecoach business, operated along Finchley Road. In 1856, there were around ten stagecoaches a day, that ran along Finchley Road and the Swiss Cottage area.
In 1860, Finchley Road St. Johns Wood was opened on the Hampstead Junction Railway, for the connection to the North London Railway. Today, this is the Finchley Road and Frognal station, on the Overground Line. Nearby, in 1879, Finchley Road station was opened on the Metropolitan Railway. Today, Finchley Road Underground station is on the Metropolitan and Jubilee Lines. In 1888, West End Lane station opened on the Hampstead Junction Railway. Today, this is West Hampstead, on the Overground Line. These new railway stations initiated urban development. For example, in 1890, the area appeared similar to the way it does now.
By 1880, omnibuses arrived at the area north of Swiss Cottage, as far as Finchley Road station. The omnibuses later extended along Finchley Road, to meet others from Edgware Road along West End Lane, and continued north to Childs Hill and Hendon. By 1911, in the early years of King George V, (r. 1910-1936), motorbuses replaced omnibuses.
Today, Finchley Road is a desirable place to live, and popular with affluent people. There are many new building projects under way.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Finchley Road
I had a look around Camden Art Centre (near Finchley Road), and enjoyed Mohammed Sami's solo exhibition. The works focus on interiors, and uncanny depictions of everyday objects such as clothing, mattresses, chairs and tables.
