In the late 1820s, Finchley Road was built to connect Marylebone to the Great North Road for wealthy individuals to commute. When the Great Northern Railway was constructed to pass through the area, an influx of suburban housing followed. Finchley is thought to mean ‘Finch’s Clearing,’ an Anglo-Saxon name which was first referred to in the 11th century.
