Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Dollis Brook Viaduct, also known as the Dollis Road Viaduct, Dollis Viaduct, Mill Hill Viaduct and Finchley Viaduct, is a railway viaduct in Finchley, North London, United Kingdom. It currently carries the London Underground's Northern line from Mill Hill East station to Finchley Central station. It is the highest point on the London Underground above ground level, reaching nearly 60 feet. It is located on a branch that was formerly part of the Edgware, Highgate and London Railway. The official name of the viaduct is taken from Dollis Brook which it crosses. The brook was marked on an 1877 Ordnance Survey map and the name may have originated from a farm called Dollis, previously in Hendon. This was earlier named Dalys in 1563, Doles 1574, Dallys 1584 and in its current form of Dollis in 1822. This probably meant "the portions or shares of land," from the Middle English word dole. The name is not thought to be connect with the area of Dollis Hill, further south. Dollis Hill is thought to mean a "hill associated with a family called Dalley."show more
