A little history about Highgate

Highgate is one of the most expensive London suburbs in which to live. It has an extremely active conservation body too known as the Highgate Society, to protect its character.

Until late Victorian times Highgate was a distinct village outside London, sitting on the main road to the north. Highgate retains many green expanses including the eastern part of Hampstead Heath, three ancient woods, Waterlow Park and the eastern facing slopes known as Highgate bowl.

At its centre is Highgate village, a collection of Georgian shops, pubs, restaurants and residential streets. There are also landmarks such as St Michaels Church and steeple, St. Josephs Church and its green copper dome, Highgate School, Jacksons Lane arts centre housed in a Grade II listed former church, the Gatehouse Inn dating from 1670 and Berthold Lubetkins 1930s Highpoint buildings. Highgate also contains the Victorian cemetery in which the Communist philosopher Karl Marx is buried, as well as many other notable people.

Highgate is at the top of North Hill which provides views across London. Highgate is also 129 metres above sea level at its highest point.

Highgate is divided between three London boroughs: Haringey in the north, Camden in the south and west, and Islington in the south and east.

Highgate used to adjoin the Bishop of Londons hunting estate. Highgate gets its name from these hunting grounds, as there osed to be a high, deer proof hedge surrounding the estate known as the gate in the hedge.

The bishop kept a toll house where one of the main northward roads out of London entered his land. A number of pubs were built along the route, one of which, the Gatehouse, commemorates the toll house.

In later centuries Highgate was associated with the highwayman Dick Turpin. Turpin also joined a gang of deer thieves and, later, became a poacher, burglar, horse thief and killer and was eventually tried and hanged for his crimes.

Hampstead Lane and Highgate Hill contain the red brick Victorian buildings of Highgate School and its adjacent Chapel of St Michael. The school has played an important role in the life of the village and has existed on its site since its founding was permitted by letters patent from Queen Elizabeth I in 1565.

The area north of the High Street and Hampstead Lane was part of Hornsey parish and also later the Municipal Borough of Hornsey and the seat of that boroughs governing body for many years.

Highgate Hill, the steep street linking Archway and Highgate village, was the route of the first cable car to be built in Europe. It operated between 1884 and 1909.

Like much of London, Highgate suffered a great deal of damage during World War II by German air raids. Highgate tube station was used as a bomb shelter.
