Burnt Oak

Richard Hay

"Burnt Oak town centre is situated along Burnt Oak Broadway and Watling Avenue and straddles Barnet, Brent and Harrow. It was built to serve the nearby Watling Estate (now a conservation area) and is famous for being home to the first Tesco supermarket. The vibrant, bustling town centre now caters for a diverse population. Watling Market takes place behind Burnt Oak Station and a number of community assets are situated close by including the Library and Love Burnt Oak community hub."
