In the 1930s, the ex-Great Northern Railway line from Edgware to Finsbury Park was planned to become part of London Transport's Northern Line. Electrification would have seen through tube trains running from the GN & City line at Moorgate over a new connection at Finsbury Park, then via Stroud Green, Crouch End, and Highgate High Level to Finchley Central, Mill Hill East, then Mill Hill (The Hale) and Edgware. There would have been an extension from Edgware to Borehamwood and Bushey Heath. A considerable amount of work had been done when Hitler's war intervened and caused the works to be deferred; after the war the plan was first neglected and then abandoned. The trackway from Finsbury Park to Highgate is now used as a footpath and cycle way.
