Monken Hadley 

Monken Hadley was an Ancient Parish in the county of Middlesex and formed part of the Edmonton hundred (subdivision) of the county.

Monken Hadley now forms part of the London Borough of Barnet.

Places in the parish include Hadley and Hadley Wood.

Surrounding Monken Hadley are the parishes of Middlesex parishes of South Mimms and Enfield and the Hertfordshire parishes of East Barnet and Chipping Barnet.
