Brent Cross is in the London Borough of Barnet and contains the Brent Cross Shopping Centre. The area takes its name from an old crossroads near the River Brent and is not in the London Borough of Brent (that local authority lies to the west of the nearby A5 Edgware Road). It has no specific boundaries but in general only premises west of the Brent Cross Flyover, east of the M1 motorway and close to the North Circular are described as being in Brent Cross. The River Brent passes through it, flowing from east to west in a man-made channel.

History

"Brent Cross" was originally the name of a crossroads (culture) in the vicinity of the current Brent Cross Flyover. By 1944 the term was being used to describe addresses north of the A406 road North Circular Road and west of the A41 road Hendon Way and after the eponymous shopping centre was built it was also used to describe business addresses south of the North Circular.

Previously the area had been known as Renters Farm, a name dating from 1309, and it remained largely farmland until the nineteenth century. In the late nineteenth century a sewage works was built there and Hendon Greyhound Stadium stood there from 1935 to 1970. In 1976 the Brent Cross Shopping Centre was opened, the first stand-alone shopping mall to be built in the United Kingdom.

In the 1920s and 1930s, two major roads through the area were constructed, the east-west A406 road North Circular Road and the north-south A41 road Hendon Way. In 1923 the Northern line (Edgware branch) was extended on a short viaduct over the River Brent. In 1965 the Brent Cross Flyover was built to carry the Hendon Way over the North Circular. In the 1970s, the North Circular Road was upgraded with a huge east-west flyover rising from Brent Cross above both the A5 road and the railway line.The M1 motorway was extended south to meet the North Circular Road slip roads below this flyover. Brent Cross is an area of north London, in the London Borough of Barnet. It is located near the A41 road over the A406 road. Brent Cross is best known for its shopping centre and the proposed Brent Cross Cricklewood development.

When Brent Cross Shopping Centre opened in 1976 it was the first stand-alone shopping mall in the UK.[http://www.ltmcollection.org/photos/photo/photo.html?_IXSR_=9d0UBPMWFHi&_IXMAXHITS_=1&IXinv=1998/72749&IXsummary=results/results&IXsearch=brent%20station&_IXFIRST_=6 London Transport Museum] View of shopping centre, 1977 It was initially constructed in a dumbbell shape running east-west parallel to the North Circular Road, with the two largest stores (John Lewis (department store) and Fenwicks) at the ends. It was expanded and renovated beginning in 1995, with additional shops and restaurants on an arm running north from the middle. A multi-storey car park replaced the remainder of the open parking area to the north.

Although it is smaller than more recent shopping centres such as the MetroCentre (shopping centre), Bluewater (shopping centre), Lakeside Shopping Centre and Westfield London, it has one of the largest incomes per unit area of retail space in the UK.

Brent Cross currently offers 8,000 free car-parking spaces, but according to the planning application submitted in March 2008 (see below) will eventually introduce parking charges.
