Northern Line Walk – Day 1
I was going to start my Northern line walk at either Edgware or High Barnet. It turned out that the first train I got on was going to Edgware so that is where this walk starts.
Edgware to Burnt Oak
After leaving Edgware tube station I headed south on Station Road and turned left onto the A5.
Burnt Oak to Colindale
I head along Gervase Road and Booth Road.
Colindale to Hendon Central
The next part of the route is through the small Colindale Park
Hendon Central to Brent Cross
I carry on along Hendon Way which is a busy main road.

I follow a small footpath that leads to the Brent Cross shopping centre. This pedestrian route into the shopping centre isn’t very welcoming. It takes me past car parks and to a tunnel which says “To The Shops”. Brent Cross was the first shopping centre of its type to be built in the UK. It isn’t as large or impressive as more recently built shopping centres but the major chains are all here.
Brent Cross to Golders Green
At the north end of Highfield Avenue I turn east into Golders Green Road. This area has a large Jewish population. There are many shops and restaurants selling Kosher food.
