View of the Church at Chipping Barnet in Hertfordshire. The modern London Borough of barnet was created in 1965 and contains districts previously known as Chipping Barnet, East Barnet and Friern Barnet. Chipping Barnet was originally founded in the early 12th century and became well known for the markets and fairs that were held there regularly- Chipping actually means market. The church of St Jon the Baptist is depicted in this watercolour. It was built by the abbot of St Albans, John de Moote, in the 15th century, the architect was John Beauchamp. William Butterfield enlarged the church in the 19th century, adding a nave and an isle.
