A young society, only formed in 1999, but active, not only in researching the past, but also in recording the present for future local historians.  It is named Friern Barnet “and District” as a reflection of its interest in its neighbouring areas of North Finchley, New Southgate, Whetstone and South Friern.

Its aims are to encourage the preservation of things of local interest, to study and record local history and to arrange lectures on topics of local and general historical interest.

The Society holds ten public meetings a year and also arranges conducted walks around the area from time to time.
