SITE DETAILS

Hendon Rectory Barnet

Summary

Hendon Rectory of the late C18th/ early C19th was on the east side of Parson Street. In the 1830s Revd. Theodore Williams created a model garden here on the 1.5 acre site, which was much cited in contemporary literature such as John Claudius Loudon's 'The Suburban Garden and Villa Companion' of 1838. The OS map of 1896 shows extensive gardens to the south and east of the house and a pond to the south. The present gardens are reduced to the east side only, with a small area of lawn with beds, shrubs, a magnolia tree and other mature species.
