History[edit] New Barnet
New Barnet
owes its conception to the building of the Great Northern Railway in 1850, when a station serving High Barnet
High Barnet
was built, but located about a mile away from the town centre of High Barnet, so that this 'new' area quickly saw development. The main road (A110), Station Road and East Barnet
East Barnet
Road, connects Barnet to East Barnet
East Barnet
and is well served by buses. From 1894 New Barnet
New Barnet
formed part of the East Barnet Urban District

until 1965 when it was transferred from Hertfordshire

to Greater London
Greater London
to become part of the newly created London Borough of Barnet. The former town hall still stands in Station Road. Local government use ended in the early 1990s and the property was sold off for use as a restaurant. In 2006 the building was converted into flats.

The main commercial area in New Barnet

is on East Barnet
East Barnet
Road, near the railway station. A number of office blocks were built in Station Road in the 1960s & 70s. Some have now been converted to flats. A large Sainsbury's

supermarket (opened 30 September 1980) is surrounded by a cluster of small independent shops. These local shops are under threat of demolition from large schemes planned by Tesco

and Asda stores. Although there is some local concern about the two planned developments,[1] many residents have noted that the town centre urgently requires some sort of redevelopment.[2] Public houses
