Edgware is a mix of old and new with a small shopping centre (The Mall) on Station Road. Old houses, tudor buildings mixed in with 1930 houses and newly developped flat complexes. The community seems to be forever changing with a basic mix of small shops on Station Road (Currys, Greggs, Poundstretchers), Edgwarebury Lane (Grodzinsky, Leonidas, Sharons, Jewish delicatessens) and the High Street (Art & Craft shop, large greengrocer, hardware shop, pizza places). Traffic is a problem as is parking due to draconian parking restrictions everywhere. It's parks are well maintained and are wide and interesting: Canons Park especially. Edgware community hospital was created at the time when Thatcher was bringing all hospitals down and a strong lobbying went on to keep a hospital going in Edgware. It is efficient in dealing with outpatients in a bright and relaxed atmosphere. Traffic is a problem as we are at a crossroad to many private school with routes leading to Mill Hill, Watford, Hendon and Harrow. Edgware Tube Station is the end stop of the Northern Line and is coupled with a large bus depot which serves routes leading to Brent Cross, Watford, Mill Hill, Harrow and more. Queensbury and Canons Park Tube stations are on the Jubilee line and add to the movement of commuters into Edgware. No cinema, no swimming pool, a few restaurants and a shopping centre and a few independent shops are all the attractions of this town.
