Cherry Hill, EN5

Place Name

Originally named Western Way when it was laid out in 1932 this New Barnet road was meant to have a tunnel running under the railway line to connect with the Western Way on the Grasvenor estate on the other side of the tracks. When it didn’t happen it inevitably cause a great deal of confusion. As local historian Doreen Willcox Barnet’s History in its Street Names explain that by the 1950s it was decided that the name should be changed the residents chose the rather dull Cherry Hill.
