Finchley Central is your gateway to Finchley: Church End, Ballards Lane, Avenue House and grounds, La Deliverance (the Naked Lady!), College Farm, and all the delights of this area....
there are two entrances one on Station Road (where you'll find a cafe, barber shop, newsagent etc...) and the main entrance onto to the mini-roundabout and car park entrances.... don't get confused..... there are many such confused people who have never made it back....
One man, who tried to limit confusion on the Underground newtork was Harry Beck, the inventor of the Tube map, urban traveller everywhere, have made their lives easier by this man who often started and finished his journey at Finchley Central...
a simple idea..... for all travellers.

This is part of the London, apart from the distant and not so distant buzz of traffic and occassional you can follow Dollis Brook and believe you are in the countryside with dogs, ducks and squirrels...
Dollis Brook originates on Mount Moat Open Space in Mill Hill and ends at the Welsh Harp (Brent Reservoir).
The name the Dollis is believed by some to have something to do with the rights of commoners at Barnet, and is rooted in the same word as "dole".
Highlights include the Northern Line bridge arches between Mill Hill East and Finchley Central, an elegant brick built structure of 13 arches.
Lowlights the culverted section under Staples Corner. A graveyard for shopping trolleys under the Brent Cross flyover...
I'll add more information as i walk the route...
