I live near new southgate br, it's brilliant. My dad uses the BR daily and had no issues. The place was a bit bad for lighting etc, but things have improved since the friern village development and a lot of people walk home late nights. Also the n134 buses are perfect for getting back from the west end and stop right outside tescos. Autumn house in north finchley is quite nice.

Mandarin

GYM

I just moved here a few weeks ago, and while I haven't joined yet, I had a chance to pop in for a chat. I think it is 72 pounds per month and a partner can join for 68 or 70. Everything is included, including all classes. The gym really is beautiful and everyone says that it is really sociable. We were members of the Holmes Place by Kensington Palace, and this one is nice (albeit smaller).

Hi, I have lived in Friern Barnet for 4 years and it is a real grower!

I was introduced to the Boulevard Club by word of mouth and it is fab if you like beer and Indian food. It is on Friern Barnet Road opposite the gates of Princess Park Manor (previously know as Colney Hatch mental asylum). The outside of the Boulevard Club doesn't look like much but inside it is an Indian pub with great food and a huge TV screen showing football, bollywood films, world news etc.

Also the Ranelagh pub just this side of Bounds Green tube station is great - lots of real beers, fruit beers, fairy lights, a garden and a good atmosphere.

The Trimph pub (on the roundabout at the end of Summers Lane) has jazz on Sunday evenings. There is another pub just up Woodhouse Road (The Woodhouse?) - small and nothing to look at but pleasant people running it.

I'm too scared to try the Orange Tree since I walked passed one Sunday morning and had to step around the pools of blood. Sorry

Womens Group

I am 31 year old straight, coupled female, with a partner who loves football more than me, so I'm looking to make new friends in my local area, in North London. I will be setting up a woman's only club, hopefully consisting of young women, 25- 45 who meet up and hang out, go out for meals, shopping, going to the cinema or just mingling around together in coffee houses. If you're keen, I am just marketing for now but intend of really kicking it off in September 2006, the group will meet once a week in a local pub in Southgate for a chat initially until we get the numbers up, then we can take it from there. Email me on

I can't answer the question you asked, but I am working on my family history and that shows that one particular Finch family, William & Elizabeth moved from Burton on Trent to Friern Barnet in about 1872/3?. They

lived in Cromwell Rd initially and were House painters by trade. Do you

have any connection to them?
