This is the last stretch of the by-pass which starts at North Hill, Highgate. It is 17 miles long and as the Great North Way was authorised in 1923 in order to bypass Finchley, Whetstone, Barnet and Old Hatfield. It was an 'arterial' road - a three lane, single carriageway, bordered by poplars – and much of it was later doubled.
