About Colney Hatch

Colney Hatch is the historical name for a small district within the London Borough of Barnet in London. The name Colney Hatch was originally that of a hamlet in the parish of Friern (once spelt Fryern) Barnet, first recorded in the early 15th century. Colney Hatch could be said to refer to a loosely defined area centred around the northern end of Colney Hatch Lane (B550), which connects Friern Barnet with Muswell Hill, crossing the North Circular Road. The area is predominantly residential with a mixture of Victorian and Edwardian houses as well as much more recent developments.
