Name of creator(s): Edgware and Hampstead Railway Company
The Edgware and Hampstead Railway Company was founded in 1902 with the intention of constructing an underground railway between Edgware and Hampstead. They aimed to connect with the underground railway at Golders Green then being constructed by the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway station.
In 1903 the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway took over the Edgware and Hampstead Railway Company with the intention of integrating their work, although the latter company retained some independent existence. However, progress on the Golders Green to Edgware section of the railway was hampered by financial problems and a brief partnership with the Watford and Edgware Railway Company, which wanted to extend the line from Edgware up to Watford. Work was not begun until 1922 and the line was finally opened in 1924. It now forms part of the Northern Line.
