B552 Highwood Hill - Barnet Gate
B552 The Ridgeway in Mill Hill, Barnet

The B552 is a semi-rural B-road in north London.

It takes over from the A502 at Hendon (at a junction where the A504 is also in existence) and changes direction, temporarily heading North East to cross the A1 at traffic lights to enter Holders Hill Road.

When the B552 reaches Holders Hill Circus and goes up Bittacy Hill it is now in Mill Hill - this section is called Mill Hill East - and its direction also changes back to North West again as it heads through Mill Hill Village along The Ridgeway. There is some nice scenery here; you would hardly know you were in London.

The B552 subsequently becomes Highwood Hill, meeting the A5109 and multiplexing east for a short distance along the same road name, until the B552 turns left for its last stretch up Hendon Wood Lane to Arkley. This road was originally numbered B554. The junction at Arkley is not too far from the A1 at Stirling Corner, which means that parts of the B552, particularly Hendon Wood Lane, can be used as a rat-run at busy times. However, traffic will generally attempt to rejoin the A1 either by further rat-running down Lawrence Street or via the B1461 so The Ridgeway remains peaceful.
