Healthy Heritage Walks


Healthy Heritage Walks
Caroline Stock
ONLINE at 2.45 pm
Thursday 30 July

Councillor Caroline Stock, currently the Mayor of Barnet, discussed Barnet’s six new and exciting Healthy Heritage Walks.

These walks have been designed to encourage people to come and explore the interesting, historic and often beautiful parts of Barnet. Caroline discussed how the walks came about, and gave the background of their design. She then took us on a meander through some of the most interesting parts of the walks, to entice the members of the Finchley Society to discover some of the many unknown and hidden secrets of her favourite London Borough … but Caroline is biased!

Councillor Stock is the 55th Mayor of Barnet. Born and raised in the Borough, she was first elected to Barnet Council in 2014 as ward member for Totteridge. She has served as Mayor since May 2019, her term of office having been extended until September 2020 due to the pandemic. Cllr Stock is also the Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board and the Borough’s Wellbeing Champion. She was instrumental in helping to launch the Mayor’s Golden Kilometre initiative, which encourages primary school pupils from across the borough to run or walk a kilometre each day.

This was our fourth online meeting. We held it using Zoom, a popular and widely used videoconferencing platform. If you would like more information about our online meetings but are not a Member of the Finchley Society, please email us at
