Burnt Oak, East Sussex

Burnt Oak is a suburb predominantly in the London Borough of Barnet south of Edgware. The name Burnt Oak was first used in 1754 and from then until the 1850s referred to no more than a field on the eastern side of the Edgware Road. Nor is there evidence that the name implies anything except that the field had once contained a burnt oak tree.
