Situated in North London near the county boundary with Hertfordshire, Barnet has a long and distinguished history. Properly called Chipping Barnet or High Barnet, the area has become synonymous with its historic horse fair, founded in 1588 and now immortalised in cockney rhyming slang. The Battle of Barnet of 1471 is also rumoured to have served as the inspiration for the nursery rhyme, 'The Grand Old Duke of York'. A further glimpse of the past is provided by Barnet's sixteenth-century church. The neighbouring suburb of Hadley is no less historic and, like Barnet, has many points of interest. The childhood home of Princess Diana, Hadley is home to the 400-acre Trent Country Park, the former hunting ground of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Robert Bard invites you to join him on a journey through time, showcasing the changes and developments that have made Barnet & Hadley the bustling communities that they are today.
