When we talk of Middlesex where do we mean?

The County, the Province or the Tribal Lands?

It's possible you didn't even realise there is a choice!


We do know that anyone who says Middlesex
‘doesn’t exist’ is talking out their hat.

The assumption that because the County Council was abolished Middlesex is abolished is fanciful - did Middlesex not exist before 1889? For that is the very recent date the Middlesex County Council was formed.

And as you will read and learn,
nothing could be further from the truth.

Welcome to POTTERS BAR in north Middlesex

The Middlesex Urban District of Potters Bar was incorporated in 1974 into the Borough of Hertsmere along with Hertfordshire's Urban District of Bushey, Elstree Rural District and Aldenham Parish.


Elstree Village, now in the same local authority as Potters Bar, is half in Middlesex and half in Herts. The Middlesex half is split between the parishes of Whitchurch aka Little Stanmore and Edgware, with the south-east quarter in the latter and the south-west in the former.
