Highbury is a district in the London Borough of Islington.HistoryEarly HighburyThe area now known as Islington was part of the larger manor of Tolentone, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Tolentone was owned by Ranulf brother of Ilger and included all the areas north and east of Canonbury and Holloway Road. The manor house was situated by what is now the east side of Hornsey Road near the junction with Seven Sisters Road. After the manor decayed, a new manor house was built in 1271 (see below) to the south-east; to differentiate it from the original manor and because it was on a hill, it was called Highbury, from which the area takes its name.The site for Highbury Manor was possibly used by a Roman garrison as a summer camp. During the construction of a new Highbury House in 1781, tiles were found that could have been Roman or Norman; unfortunately these have been lost.Highbury ManorOwnership of Highbury eventually passed to Alicia de Barrow, who in 1271 gave it to the Priory of St John of Jerusalem, also known as the Knights Hospitallers in England. The wealthy Lord Prior built Highbury manor as a substantial stone country lodging with a grange and barn.In 1381, during the Peasants' Revolt, Jack Straw led a mob of 20,000 rioters who "so offended by the wealth and haughtiness" of the Knights Hospitallers destroyed the manor house. The Lord Prior at the time, Robert Hales, who had taken refuge in the Tower of London, was captured and beheaded on Tower Hill. Jack Straw and some of his followers used the site as a temporary headquarters; consequently the derelict manor became known for the next 500 years as Jack Straw’s Castle. This should not be confused with the better known Jack Straw’s Castle, formerly a pub and now residential flats at Whitestone Ponds, Hampstead, which was named after the semi-legendary leader of the revolt.

The Joker of Penton Street
Distance: 1.4 mi Tourist Information
58 Penton Street
London, N1 9PZ

020 7837 3891

Joseph Grimaldi - early nineteenth century Islington resident and the creator of the modern day clown - provides the inspiration for a new pub opening this week at the junction of Chapel Market and Penton Street, Islington. “The Joker of Penton Street” will put a contemporary spin on the satire that Grimaldi introduced to the stage at nearby Saddlers Wells by defying hipster bar fashion and taking itself far less seriously than its location suggests it should, and by celebrating those skilful raconteurs whom, throughout history, have raised a laugh at the expense of the conventions of the day. “Life is a scream” comments landlord Dan Hanlin, “and at The Joker of Penton Street we intend to remember that by ensuring everyone has a fun time with us, every time they visit”. Comedy looks set to play its part in the entertainment at the pub, the first floor function room providing an ideal venue for great stand-up and improv. and the credibility of the music will never be in question. But the Joker is as much about having a great time in brilliant company with the tastiest food and the most refreshing ale. The food is provided by the aptly named “Tongue ‘n Cheek” street food specialists who have been setting Londoners’ taste buds alight with the famous Heartbreak burger, made from 50% ox heart and 50% dry, 40 day aged beef. Cask ale comes from the Laine’s Brewery located in Hackney at sister pub The People’s Park Tavern, and cocktails have been developed by Hanlin himself, who has attempted to reflect the joy and diversity of British drinking in the recipes he has devised. When Grimaldi was a resident of Penton Street, the pub was called The Compasses, derivations of the name surviving right up until the last few years when it became a restaurant called The Hundred Crows Rising. New owners – InnBrighton – who made the site their sixth London acquisition, set out to turn it back into a vibrant pub by giving it an unconventional makeover in a similar fashion to their recent projects at the People’s Park Tavern in Hackney and the Aeronaut in Acton. In addition to a commissioned, large wooden sculpture of the comedy and tragedy dramatic masks, the interior includes a rare oddity in the original 10 feet high clock which featured on the cover of the Oasis album "Be Here Now", and which formed part of the band’s stage show. As well as portraits of Grimaldi himself, the pub’s artwork includes references to other entertainers who have added pathos, humanity and satirical qualities to the personality of the clown, such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Norman Wisdom and Andy Kaufman. But unlike Grimaldi who punned “I am grim all day – but at night I make you laugh”, The Joker of Penton Street, which trades from midday to past midnight, promises to be a welcoming, interesting and fun loving place whatever the time.

Hoxton is a district in the East End of London, England, immediately north of the financial district of the City of London. Hoxton forms the western part of Shoreditch, being part of the ancient parish and subsequent Metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch prior to its incorporation into the London Borough of Hackney. The area of Hoxton is bordered by Regent's Canal on the north side, Wharf Road and City Road to the west, Old Street to the south, and Kingsland Road to the east.Hoxton is also a ward, electing three councillors to Hackney London Borough Council. It forms part of the Hackney South and Shoreditch constituency.Historical HoxtonOrigins"Hogesdon" is first recorded in the Domesday Book, meaning an Anglo-Saxon farm (or "fortified enclosure") belonging to Hoch, or Hocq. Little is recorded of the origins of the settlement, though there was Roman activity around Ermine Street, which ran to the east of the area from the 1st century. In medieval times, Hoxton formed a rural part of Shoreditch parish. It achieved independent ecclesiastical status in 1826 with the founding of its own parish church dedicated to St John the Baptist, though civil jurisdiction was still invested in the Shoreditch vestry. The Worshipful Company of Haberdashers remains Patron of the advowson of the parish of St John's.
