About High Barnet
High Barnet is a place in the London Borough of Barnet, North London. High Barnet is built around a 12th century settlement and is situated 10 miles NNW of Charing Cross and in the postal district of EN5. It was traditionally in Hertfordshire, but in 1965 became part of Gtr London. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the area.
The tower at Barnet parish church, St John the Baptist (at the top of Barnet Hill) claims its tip to be the highest point between itself and the Ural Mountains 2000 miles across to the east. The same, however, has been said of many other points. Barnet Hill is a sizeable hill on the historic Great North Road, although the modern Great North Road runs along Barnet Bypass.
High Barnet underground station is the terminus of the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line, and is the northern-most station on the line. The town was the site of the Battle of Barnet in 1471 AD, where Yorkist troops led by King Edward IV killed the rebellious Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick and his brother, John Neville, First Marquess of Montagu.
Barnet is the site of an ancient and well known horse fair, hence the Cockney rhyming slang of “Barnet” for “hair”. The fair dates back to 1588 when Queen Elizabeth I granted a charter to the Lord of the Manor providing the right to hold a twice yearly fair. Chipping Barnet was historically a civil parish of Hertfordshire and formed part of the Barnet Urban District from 1894. This parish was abolished in 1965 and the Chipping Barnet section of its former area was transferred to Greater London and the newly-created London Borough of Barnet.
At the turn of the 21st century, a tongue-in-cheek movement calling for the name Barnet to be changed to “Barnét” began to gain the attention of both the public and the national media, with many public road signs in the area regularly being altered to contain the accented character. Despite some encouragement from some residents, Barnet Council has been treating any such alterations to public road signs as vandalism.
