London Buses route 41 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, United Kingdom. The service is currently contracted to Arriva London.

HistoryEdit

Today's route 41 commenced operation on 26 April 1915 as a daily route between Muswell Hill Broadway and Crouch End (Clock Tower) via Muswell Hill Road, Archway Road, Holloway Road, Elthorne Road, Hazelville Road, Hornsey Rise, Crouch End Hill and Crouch End Broadway.

Three months later, it was extended to Wood Green (Fishmongers Arms) via Tottenham Lane, Turnpike Lane, Wood Green High Road and Jolly Butchers Hill. It replaced routes 21 and 21A between Crouch End and Turnpike Lane. On 11 August 1915, a small diversion was introduced between Archway and Hornsey Rise, with buses now using St John's Road(Today's St John's Way). The 41 was withdrawn between Turnpike Lane(Wellington) and Wood Green as from 24 July 1916. In December 1916, as from the 4th, the 41 was extended daily from Muswell Hill Broadway to Colney Hatch Lane (Wilton Road).

The 41, became more like the route known today, when on 26 August 1919 it was extended from Turnpike Lane to Tottenham (Swan) via West Green Road and Tottenham High Road. This extension only lasted less than one month, as on 10 September 1919, the 41 was re-routed via Broad Lane to Tottenham Hale. The following Sunday a supplementary 41A Sundays only route was introduced between Friern Barnet (Orange Tree) and Tottenham Hale via Colney Hatch Lane, Muswell Hill Broadway and route 41 to Tottenham Hale, although this route couldn't have been a success as it was withdrawn after service on 26 October 1919.
