Research Tips

Edgware is a town in Middlesex which has been absorbed into the urban area of London. Sources conflict as to whether it was one of the ancient parishes of Middlesex or not - Vision of Britain deems it to have been a chapelry of Kingsbury parish, whilst the Victoria County History calls it an ancient parish but makes clear that it was jointly administered with Kingsbury for some time in the medieval period. In 1894 Edgware became part of Hendon Rural District. In 1931 Edgware parish was abolished and absorbed into the parish and Urban District of Hendon, which was incorporated the following year to become a Municipal Borough. Hendon Municipal Borough Council in turn was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the London Borough of Barnet.

Edgware is a town in London, situated north-northwest of Charing Cross. It forms part of the London Borough of Barnet. Edgware is one of the northernmost areas of built-up London. It is a mix of suburban and rural land. Edgware is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.

It is principally a shopping and residential area and is one of the northern termini of the Northern Line. It has a bus garage, a shopping centre called The Broadwalk, a library, a large hospital—Edgware Community Hospital, and two streams—Edgware Brook and Deans Brook, both tributaries of the Silk Stream, which in turn merges with the River Brent at the Welsh Harp (Brent Reservoir).
