Block Management Mill Hill
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Mill Hill .
History of Mill Hill
Mill Hill is situated in north London, in the borough of Barnet. It is 9 miles from central London. The original name was Myllehill in 1547, and this means "hill with a windmill". It probably derives from a mill on The Ridgeway, built on an area of open ground, known as The Mill Field.
From the 17th century onwards, the area's proximity to the city made it a popular country retreat. Many of the early 18th century estates and large houses survive to this day. The staffing of houses and estate management, and the building of many farms, brought more workers to the area.
A nonconformist school was built in 1807. This is now Mill Hill School. The Wilberforce Anglican Church was built in 1833; and many Roman Catholic Institutions were built in the 1860s.
In 1867, during the reign of Queen Victoria, (r.1837-1901), the original Mill Hill station, was opened on the Edgware, Highgate and London Railway. In 1941, it opened as an Underground station, on the Northern Line. In 1868, the original station Lawrence Street, was opened on the Midlands Railway. It was renamed Mill Hill Broadway in 1950.
From the 1860s onwards, new easier access to London with railways, brought a boom in house building. The construction of the Barnet Bypass in 1926, brought more commercial activity, especially at the lower end of Lawrence Street, which was renamed The Broadway. During this period, more estates were built.
It was not until 1965, that Mill Hill became a suburb of London. It was originally a region of Middlesex. In 1880, the area had a population of 1,335; in 1921, it was 6,055, and in 1931, it was 56,031. However, in 2011, Mill Hill's population was 18,451.
