Mill Hill East

Mill Hill East

Mill Hill East is an area in the London Borough of Barnet.

It has recently undergone redevelopment, a new Waitrose having been built on the site of the old gas works. There is a tube station, opened in 1867, servicing a spur on the High Barnet Branch of the Northern Line. It is the least-visited station on the Northern Line - only one in eight northbound trains goes there.

The small local retail area is at “Kelly’s Corner” (officially Holders Hill Circus but only on maps!) east of the station. Here was Inglis Barracks home of the Middlesex Regiment between 1905 and 1962. The army still has a smaller presence here but this is now just a postal depot. The United Kingdom / Carl Zeiss / Bausch & Lomb Optical Works was established here in 1912 and demolished in about 1987. The Jehovah's Witnesses have had a centre here since 1958, and they redeveloped the optical works to become the International Bible Students' Association in 1988. To the south of Mill Hill East are Copthall and Holders Hill.
