A walk of astonishing contrasts. A walk whose centrepiece is a London village. A London village rich in history. A London village nestled in beauteous countryside. Did I detect a pause at the mention of history? Coaching inns, a market town since the 13th century, horse fairs, a decisive battle, Barnet’s been in the thick of it. And as for “personalities” – here’s Charles 1, over there Elizabeth 1, oh and look, here comes Samuel Pepys; be sure to say hello to Charles Dickens; and to Kinglsey Amis. There are a number of lesser well-known areas of London that have the ability to surprise and delight and this……………. is no exception! *No wonder its high street is packed with shops
