A1 road in London

Located at 51.59, -0.14 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 1 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The A1 road in London is the southern part of the A1 road which passes through London from its start at Aldersgate in the City of London to Borehamwood on the northern fringe of Greater London, going on to cross under the M25, briefly becoming the A1(M) motorway before continuing to Edinburgh. The road travels through the City and three London boroughs: Islington, Haringey and Barnet, which include the districts of Islington, Holloway and Highgate, and travels along Upper Street and Holloway Road, crossing the North Circular Road in Barnet. The A1 is the most recent in a series of routes north out of London to York and beyond. It was designated in 1921 by the Ministry of Transport under the Great Britain road numbering scheme, comprising existing roads and streets, mostly historic, and later using stretches of purpose-built new roads in what is now the outer London borough of Barnet. The Archway Road section was built by Thomas Telford using Roman cement and gravel, an innovative technique that was used there for the first time, and is the basis for modern road building. The route closely follows the historic route of the Great North Road, though from 1954 it has diverted round the congested suburbs of Finchley and High Barnet along modern roads constructed in the 1920s and 1930s. The A1 is one of London's main roads, providing a link to the M1 and the A1(M) motorways, and on to the Midlands, Northern England and Scotland. Despite this, its main use is to connect a number of neighbourhoods within north London; less than 5% of its vehicles are through traffic – the bulk is local. The roads along which the A1 route travels are the shared responsibility of the local boroughs, the Greater London Authority, and the British Government via the Department for Transport.

Queen's Wood

Located at 51.59, -0.14 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 1 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Queen's Wood is a 52 acre (21 hectare) area of ancient woodland in the London Borough of Haringey, abutting Highgate Wood and lying between East Finchley, Highgate Village, Muswell Hill and Crouch End. It was originally part of the ancient Forest of Middlesex which covered much of London, Hertfordshire and Essex and was mentioned in the Domesday Book and is now one of three Local Nature Reserves in the London Borough of Haringey. It is situated a few minutes' walk away from Highgate tube station. Haringey contains four distinct ancient woods. These are Highgate Wood, Queen's Wood, Coldfall Wood and Bluebell Wood. All are shown on John Rocque's 1754 Map of Middlesex. Queen's Wood was known as Churchyard Bottom Wood (possibly because of the discovery of human bones in the west of the Wood which are presumed to have been from the burial pit for victims of the bubonic plague in 1665) until it was purchased from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners by Hornsey Urban District Council in 1898 and renamed Queen's Wood in honour of Queen Victoria. The wood is an ancient oak-hornbeam woodland, which features English oak and occasional beech which provide a canopy above cherry, field maple, hazel, holly, hornbeam, midland hawthorn, mountain ash and both species of lowland birch. The scarce Wild Service Tree (which is evidence of the Woods's ancient origin) is scattered throughout the wood. The Wood has no park or playing fields (but does sport a children's adventure playground built on top of the plague pit) and has never been subjected to intensive management of the type practised at Highgate Wood and accordingly there is greater diversity of flora and fauna - Bantock (1984) found a significantly greater number of ground feeding birds present in the Wood when compared to Highgate Wood, which he attributed to the greater structural diversity and denser shrub layer present. Queen's Wood is a Local Nature Reserve and a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. The ground flora is particularly rich given its proximity to central London (the wood is within a six-mile radius of Charing Cross railway station). It includes a large population of wood anemone, goldilocks buttercup and wood sorrel, yellow pimpernel and square-stemmed St John's wort. Despite fairly high levels of disturbance, the bird life is diverse and includes three species of woodpecker. Over one hundred species of spiders have been spotted and a nationally rare jewel beetle is widespread.

Evangelical Library

More reading: Evangelical Library homepage

The Evangelical Library 5-6 Gateway Mews, Ringway, Bounds Green, London, N11 2UT is a lending library for Christian ministers, students and other lay-persons. For many years the library was located on Chiltern Street in central London. It moved to North London in mid-2009. The Library was founded through the vision of Geoffrey Williams (1886–1975) to be a library that offered the very best of Protestant evangelical resources. In this aim he was much encouraged in 1938 by the then associate minister of Westminster Chapel, Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Before the move in 1944 to its Chiltern Street location close to Baker Street tube station, it was known as the Beddington Free Grace Library, based in the tiny village of Beddington, Surrey. The library is home to more than 80,000 evangelical books. It also has an extensive archive of several evangelical periodicals. It hosts an annual lecture and publishes a regular magazine called In Writing (formerly known as The Evangelical Library Bulletin). Following a major refurbishment in 2005, the library now has a reference room, known as the Robert Sheehan Puritan and Research Centre, named in honour of the late Robert J. Sheehan (1951–97), the former pastor of Welwyn Evangelical Church. It has links with a number of similar libraries worldwide, which it also supports.

Ashmount Primary School

Located at 51.59, -0.14 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 1 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Ashmount Primary School is a Community School in the London Borough of Islington. This means that it is supported by the LBI in its capacity as a Local Education Authority. The council employs the staff (but the Ashmount Governing Body appoints them on the advice of the Head), owns the land and buildings, and sets the admission criteria. There are normally more applicants to Ashmount than there are places with Islington selecting the successful applicants according to the published admission criteria, which are the usual ones for community schools in Islington. Applicants are ranked in priority with looked after or adopted children first, children with a statement of special needs, children with siblings at the school, and then the rest. Inside these categories, if required, children are ranked by the straight line distance from the school. In practice as looked after children and children with a special needs statement naming the school are rare, the ranking consists of children with siblings at the school, and then by distance, followed by all other children and then by distance. Each year, in due course, the distance of the child furthest from the school who was admitted on distance alone is published. Ashmount is a "two form entry" primary school; that is it admits 60 pupils each year into the reception class. There is also a nursery class. The day to day management of the school is in the hands of the Head Teacher while the strategic direction of the school is set by the Head and the Governing Body. The Head is appointed by the school governors; the annual budget of the school is proposed by the Head subject to the approval of the Governing Body. The terms of employment of the Head are, subject to national guidelines, set by the Governing Body. Should circumstances require it, and subject to the ordinary protections of employment law, the Head of a community school may be removed by the Governing Body, but only by the Governing Body. Consequently the Head is accountable to the Governing Body but not managed by it. These arrangements for the governance of schools in England date from the Education Reform Act 1988 (This Act took all schools out of the financial control of Local Authorities). Ashmount School itself dates from 1957, it was established by the London County Council.

Highpoint I

Located at 51.59, -0.14 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 1 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Highpoint I was the first of two apartment blocks erected in the 1930s on one of the highest points in London, England at Highgate. The architectural design was by Russian-born architect Berthold Lubetkin, the structural design by Danish engineer Ove Arup and the construction by Kier. Highpoint I was built in 1935 for the entrepreneur Sigmund Gestetner, but was never used for its intended purpose of housing staff of the Gestetner company. One of the best examples of early International style architecture in London, this block of 64 flats was very innovative in its day. When the building was completed, it became widely renowned as the finest example of this form of construction for residential purposes. When Corbusier himself visited Highpoint in 1935 he said, "This beautiful building .... at Highgate is an achievement of the first rank. " And American critic Henry Russell Hitchcock called it, "One of the finest, if not absolutely the finest, middle-class housing projects in the world. " In 1970 this reputation gained official recognition when both Highpoint blocks were classified Grade I within the historic buildings listing programme. The second Lubetkin building in the same style, Highpoint II, was completed on an adjoining site in 1938. The gardens at Highpoint contain a swimming pool and two tennis courts. Architectural historian Dan Cruickshank selected Highpoint as one of his eight choices for the 2002 BBC book The Story of Britain's Best Buildings.

Cherry Tree Wood

More reading: Wikipedia Article

Cherry Tree Wood is a 5.3 hectare park in East Finchley in the London Borough of Barnet. It is a Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation. Located next to East Finchley tube station, it contains woodland and grassland, a playground, tennis courts, a cafe and toilets. Its history may date back to prehistoric times, and the park was part of the hunting grounds of the Bishop of London in the 12th century. It is remnant of the large medieval wood called Finchley Wood, which was shown in Great Hornsey Park in Rocque's map 1754. It was later known as Dirthouse Wood because the night soil and horse manure from London's streets was brought to the Dirthouse, now the White Lion pub next to East Finchley Station, as fertiliser for hay meadows. In 1914 it was purchased by Finchley Council from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners to create a public park. Until it became a public park, hornbeam trees were cut back every few years to provide wood for charcoal, while oaks were allowed to grow to their full height for timber. Now that coppicing has ceased the hornbeams have grown tall and rangy, and the wood has grown shaded. Wood anemone and other ancient plants can be found in the spring, and nuthatch and great spotted woodpecker are often seen. Mutton Brook rises in Cherry Tree Wood, and the Capital Ring between Hendon and Highgate passes through it.
