Barnet Society 75th anniversary review of Chipping Barnet’s Green Belt

Written by
The Barnet Society’s 75th birthday in May 2020 is a timely moment to celebrate the local Green Belt that was the original reason for our existence.

Our founding in 1945 was prompted by the threat to build on the green space that surrounds Chipping Barnet on three sides. Seventy-five years on, it is appropriate to celebrate that countryside – and to review threats and opportunities for its future.

The following five articles are a collaboration between Owen Jones, a longstanding member of the Society and editor of Rambles Round Barnet Parts 1 & 2, and Robin Bishop, who write about the challenges today to the landscape in which each walk is set.
