Brent Farm, a small farm known from the 1750s onwards was a mushroom farm by 1902.

The site became steadily more non-agricultural as a huge sewage works was built in the early part of the 20th century.

Two of the cottages still stand though mostly the area now forms part of the shopping zone around Brent Cross.

Brent Cross

Brent Cross tube station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line, between Hendon Central and Golders Green. The Brent Cross shopping centre is nearby.

The station was designed by architect Stanley Heaps and opened as Brent on the 19 November 1923, the first station on the extension of what was then known as the Hampstead & Highgate Line through undeveloped rural areas to Edgware. The extension had first been planned prior to World War I when the station had been due to be called Woodstock. It was renamed from Brent to its current name on the 20 July 1976 opening of the shopping centre.
