Totteridge & Whetstone

Totteridge & Whetstone


Totteridge & Whetstone. Totteridge was recorded as Taterugg in 1248 and is derived from the personal name of a Saxon Totta and a ridge of a hill where he lived - and thus means 'Totta's ridge'. Whetstone was recorded as Wheston in 1417 and means 'the stone quarry'. Tradition holds that there was once a large stone here on which the soldiers sharpened their steel before the battle of Barnet in 1471.

The station was opened as TOTTERIDGE by the Great Northern Railway on 1 April 1872 and was re-named TOTTERIDGE & WHETSTONE on 1 April 1874. It was first used by Underground trains on 14 April 1940.
