High Barnet

High Barnet was recorded as Barneto c.1070 and as la Bernet in 1235 and is derived from the Old English baernet - 'a place cleared by burning' - or 'bernette', a French word for slope - i.e. Barnet Hill. Ground was cleared this way by early settlers. High refers to its geographical location.

The station was opened as HIGH BARNET by the Great Northern Railway on 1 April 1872 and first used by Underground trains on 14 April 1940.
