Colindale is a region of north-west London and the Borough of Barnet. The area lies south of Burnt Oak and Edgware, and north of West Hendon, the Brent Reservoir and Wembley. For most of its history, Colindale was almost entirely uninhabited, with the exception being a prominent local family who gave the area its name. During the medieval period, Colindale became part of a route in and out of central London, but it wasnít until the early years of the 20th century that industrial or commercial activity really arrived in the area. The period after the First World War saw an increase in the number of manufacturing businesses operating from Colindale and by the time the Second World War began, the town was rapidly emerging as a popular and vibrant suburban London location.
