A little history about Whetstone

Just like something out of the movies or the pages of a fictional novel, Whetstone may have been the location of a Soviet spy base. Tass, the Soviet news agency, had a radio monitoring station at The Lodge, 13 Oakleigh Park North, and the British security agencies became aware that it was being used to track its activities. According to local newspapers, the diplomatic immunity granted to the Russians was a concern for the British government since it effectively granted a licence for Tass to publish libellous newsletters without the threat of prosecution.

Despite this concern, the Soviets were subsequently granted permission to use specialist radio equipment which was then used to spy on the British. The matter was escalated to Prime Minister Clement Attlee and was discussed by senior members of the cabinet, and the Russians were eventually ordered to cease their radio monitoring operation.

Whetstone itself originated in medieval times. Whetstone was a very important staging post for coaches going north from London. There has been an inn on the site of the present Griffin pub for centuries, though the present building dates from 1928. The buildings to the left of the pub date from the late 15th century.

It is thought that Whetstone was named after the whetstone used to sharpen knives and other tools, a chunk of which is located on the High Road, on the pavement outside the Griffin pub. Some people dispute this claim and suggest the stone was placed there as a mounting block for climbing on to horses as the Griffin was a coaching inn. It is also said that the name Whestone is merely a corruption of an old Anglo-Saxon name. Legend has it that it was used by soldiers about to fight in the Battle of Barnet.

There were early 19th century buildings opposite the Griffin pub on the corner of Totteridge Lane, but they were demolished in 2001 and replaced by a new Boots the Chemist store.

The celebrated and tragic British singer songwriter Amy Winehouse moved to the area of Whetstone in 1991, after living in Southgate since 1983. Miss Winehouse had lived in Whetstone for about six years.
