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.

Finsbury Park station is a busy transport interchange in north London. The interchange consists of a National Rail station, a London Underground station and two bus stations, all interconnected. The main entrances are by the eastern bus station on Station Place. The National Rail ticket office here lies in between one entrance marked by the Underground roundel symbol, while the other is marked by the National Rail symbol, and provides direct access to the main line platforms. There is another exit by the western bus station along Wells Terrace, incorporating the Underground ticket office, plus a narrow side entrance to the south on the A503 Seven Sisters Road. The complex is located in Travelcard Zone 2.The station is named after the nearby Finsbury Park, one of the oldest of London's Victorian parks. It is also used by many Arsenal supporters on matchdays, as the club's ground is just a short walk away.When the Victoria line was built in the 1960s, the walls in Finsbury Park station were decorated with mosaics of duelling pistols, which can still be seen. This was based on a mistaken identification of Finsbury Park with Finsbury Fields, which was used by Londoners since medieval times for archery and sports, and also associated with 18th-century duels and one of the first hot air balloon flights. Finsbury Fields was close to the present-day Finsbury Square, 3mi south. At the same time the long entrance subways and the Wells Terrace booking hall (at the bus station end) were rebuilt to a high standard.

HM Prison Holloway is a closed category prison for adult women and young offenders in Holloway, London, England, operated by Her Majesty's Prison Service. It is the largest women's prison in western Europe. It was announced in 2015 that HMP Holloway will close due to its age and the fact it is unsuited to the needs of a modern prison.Holloway was used to imprison suffragettes including Constance Markeivicz (imprisoned for her part in the Irish Rebellion) Charlotte Despard, Mary Richardson, Dora Montefiore, Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington, and Ethel Smyth.In 2016, after the suspicious death of inmate Sarah Reed, her family claimed that the prison has forbidden them to examine the body.HistoryHolloway prison was opened in 1852 as a mixed-sex prison, but due to growing demand for space for female prisoners, particularly due to the closure of Newgate, it became female-only in 1903.BuildingHolloway Prison was completely rebuilt between 1971 and 1985 on the same site. The redevelopment resulted in the loss of the "grand turreted" gateway to the prison, which had been built in 1851; architectural critic Gavin Stamp was later to regret the loss and to note that the climate of opinion at the time was such that the Victorian Society felt unable to object.

The pub has won awards for the quality and range of its cask ales.HistoryThe Wenlock Arms first opened for business in 1836 and was operated by the nearby Wenlock Brewery as a "brewery tap".John Lane (1808–1873) owned and ran the Wenlock Brewery from 1840 until his death, initially as "Lane & Bowden" (the 1842 Post Office Directory mentions “LANE & BOWDEN, Ale Brewers, 9 Wenlock Road”). John's brother-in-law, John Mitchell (1813–1868), was brewery foreman in 1851 (mentioned in the census). Various other members of the Mitchell family worked at the brewery from time to time. These included John Mitchell's older brother Thomas (mentioned in the census as being foreman at the brewery in 1871), another John Mitchell (a cousin; c. 1820–1849), as well as at least three of John Lane's brothers. Yet another John Mitchell, John Hoffe Mitchell, was joint executor of John Lane's will.In 1873, ownership passed to John Lane's youngest son, Robert George. Robert, after brewing in Alton, Hampshire, and marrying Parisienne Louise Marie Julienne Isabel Jean dit Saussay in 1876, died of pneumonia in 1880, aged only 31. After this the brewery became the property of one Richard Alfred Glover, before being taken over by Glover Bell & Co in 1887.

Holloway Road is a station on the London Underground. It is on the Piccadilly line between Caledonian Road and Arsenal stations, and in Travelcard Zone 2. The station opened on 15 December 1906.The station was constructed by the Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway and was built with two lift shafts, but only one was ever used for lifts. The second shaft was the site of an experimental spiral escalator which was built by the American inventor of escalators, Jesse W. Reno. The experiment was not successful and was never used by the public. In the 1990s, remains of the escalator equipment were excavated from the base of the lift shaft and stored at the London Transport Museum Depot in Acton. From the platforms, a second exit no longer in use is visible and leads to the back of the used lift shaft.The station is adjacent to the site of the former Holloway and Caledonian Road railway station.The station is close to the new Emirates Stadium, the new home of Arsenal football club. As part of the planning permission £5m was due to be spent expanding the current station to cope with increased passenger numbers on match days. However subsequent studies showed that to ensure the station could cope with the numbers the lifts would have to be replaced with escalators which would cost £60m. As a result, the redevelopment plans were put on hold and now at match times the station is exit only, and before a match eastbound trains do not call.

Stoke Newington Common is an open space in Stoke Newington in the London Borough of Hackney. It is east of Stoke Newington High Street, with Northwold Road to the north, and it straddles the busy Rectory Road. The Common is 2.15ha in area.This is old common land that came under public ownership in 1872. It was originally known as Cockhanger Green and later became Shacklewell Common, but Shacklewell's contracting sphere of influence led to it being named for a time 'Newington Common' (not to be confused with Newington Green) until finally in the early 20th century it acquired its present name.Not merely the common's name has been mangled by time. Unlike its near neighbour, Hackney Downs, this land has been dissected by London's Victorian transport links. The deep cutting of the railway line between Stoke Newington and Rectory Road railway stations runs straight through the common from north to south, while the parallel Rectory Road making part of the A10 gyratory slices off another strip to the west. Finally the road called Stoke Newington Common carrying a busy bus route chops off a section to the south.The now buried and lost Hackney Brook once ran across the north of the common, but this has long been replaced by the busy Northwold Road. This was due to the increased population at the time of its burial reducing the brook to no more than an open sewer.

Barnard Bark
London, United Kingdom N1

A short walk from the Angel or King’s Cross, Barnard Park is large city park which provides green space and amenities for a diverse community. Cricket was invented nearby in the early eighteenth century, at White Conduit Fields (just south of the modern intersection of Barnsbury Road and Dewey Road). The area was developed into terraces of brick houses in the nineteenth century, and then bombed in the 1940s. Re-developed as a park in the 1960s, Barnard Park now contains a football pitch, playgrounds for children of various ages and a pleasant green space with views reaching over King’s Cross to the West End. The Friends of Barnard Park work for improvement of all aspects of the park. We organise community gardening projects to plant bulbs and whole beds. We liaise with police and council to improve park security. We organise events in the park, which have included local history exhibits, picnics, performances by local artists, boules and bouncy castles. We worked with the council and community groups to organise an international design competition to create a vision for the regeneration of the park, and to incorporate within it the views and preferences of local residents. Membership of the Friends is open to all. We hope that you'll join us.

We teach with an original technique, using modern teaching tools to produce happy, shiny, dancy people. We want our students to enjoy tango and we'll do everything we can to make you feel at home. Ok, so what is tango apart from a fizzy, orange drink? In short, tango is: a dance of South American origin, danced by couples in a social setting. In long, it is emotional, poetic, disciplined, physical, unpredictable, addictive, passionate, authentic, spiritual and that's only the short of the long of it. So, if you're looking for something involving with a ton of character and loads to offer, Argentine tango is for you. Tango attracts a whole melting pot of people, some who look like they were bred for it and some who might come as a pleasant surprise: so don't fret if you don't look like you're straight out of Buenos Aires. And, if you feel you have as much natural flair as Silvio Berlusconi has trouser control, that's fine too. Everyone's got to start somewhere. And starting is fun! A good place (we like to think) is www.tanguito.co.uk where you can find more information about Tanguito, our classes and what we do. You can also learn more about tango itself. Check it out and see if it sounds like it might be your cup of Malbec, then come in and see us. We'd love to meet you. Start here. We're in it for the long run.

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.

Highbury Square is an apartment complex in Highbury, London. It was originally Arsenal Stadium: the home stadium of Arsenal F.C. until 2006 when they moved out and into the newly built Emirates Stadium nearby.HistoryThe building was originally constructed in 1913 and designed by Archibald Leitch as Arsenal Stadium in the Art Deco style. It remained the home of Arsenal for 93 years until 2006, when they moved into the new Emirates Stadium.The complex cost Arsenal £130 million to build. In 2009, Arsenal sold 150 apartments in Highbury Square to London & Stamford Property at a 20 per cent discount to market value because several buyers failed to complete apartment purchases. Arsenal cleared their debt on Highbury Square by 2010.RedevelopmentThe North Bank and Clock End were demolished while the older Grade II listed buildings of the East and West Stands remained as part of the development. The pitch was redeveloped into gardens. Several parts of Arsenal Stadium were retained including the marble halls, the bust of Herbert Chapman and the players' tunnel. It was opened officially in 2009, by Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger.DetailsHighbury Square has 650 flats. Former Arsenal player Robert Pirès owns one of the flats. Although it houses private residences, Highbury Square was due to have a public footpath through it. Drainage issues in 2010 prevented this footpath from being opened, which led to it being called a "gated community" by local councillors.

Lupi Di Londra LDL
Distance: 1.8 mi Tourist Information
333 Old Street
London, United Kingdom EC1V 9LE

I Lupi di Londra vengono fondati da Roberto Marroni e Andrea Vitale nel 2003, lo scopo del gruppo è quello di essere il punto di riferimento per i romanisti nel Regno Unito, residenti e non, italiani o stranieri, organizzando trasferte, partite all'Olimpico, ed una sede per seguire la ROMA in diretta. I Lupi esordiscono all'Olimpico nel 2003 in occasione di ROMA vs Brescia e, da quella partita in poi, sono stati presenti ogni volta che la Maggica ha calcato un manto erboso inglese: Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle, Arsenal, Chelsea, Middlesborough, West Ham, Tottenham... Presenti anche all'Olimpico almeno una volta al mese, partendo con il primo aereo del mattino e tornando la sera stessa. Con i cambi di legge e l'avvento della TdT, i lupi londinesi entrano in un periodo di semi letargo, visto che era diventato impossibile organizzare trasferte o semplicemente ordinare biglietti per le partite in casa dall'estero. Il club rimase comunque un contatto per coloro i quali volessero seguire la roma in TV a Londra. Nel Settembre 2012 Marcello Passerini contatta Roberto con l'idea di riattivare il club; Marcello, come collaboratore, getta le basi per costruire un grande club. Con il supporto di Roberto, il primo obbiettivo è trovare una nuova sede e grazie all'aiuto e disponibilità della Chiesa Italiana, si trovò sala dove seguire tutte le partite in diretta. In poche partite e con l’aiuto di Filippo, Alan, Giuliano, ora consiglieri del Club, ma anche tanti altri, si arriva subito ad un numero elevato di soci, culminato in un picco di oltre 150 persone al derby lazie-ROMA del 11 Novembre 2012. Da ROMA - Atalanta in poi, siamo tornati ad essere presenti alle partite casalinghe con il nostro striscione... Obiettivo futuro ricominciare con le trasferte in Europa ed in Italia e soprattutto aiutare, consigliare, etc. il popolo giallorosso in trasferta a Londra. A fine marzo Passerini conclude la sua collaborazione con il club- Il nostro sito! www.lupidilondra.net Iscrivetevi al nostro forum!!! http://lupidilondra.forumfree.it/?t=65333233 Seguiteci anche su Twitter https://twitter.com/lupidilondra12 FORZA ROMA SEMPRE OVUNQUE E COMUNQUE !

Newington Green Unitarian Church in north London is one of England's oldest Unitarian churches. It has had strong ties to political radicalism for over 300 years, and is London's oldest Nonconformist place of worship still in use. It was founded in 1708 by English Dissenters, a community of which had been gathering around Newington Green for at least half a century before that date. The church belongs to the umbrella organisation known as the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, and has had an upturn in its fortunes since the turn of the millennium.Its most famous minister was Dr Richard Price, a political radical who is remembered for his role in the Revolution Controversy, a British debate about the French Revolution, but who also did pioneering work in finance and statistics. The most famous member of its congregation was Mary Wollstonecraft, who drew inspiration from Price's sermons in her work, both in arguing for the new French republic and in raising the issue of the rights of women.The building, which faces the north side of the green, was extended in 1860, and was listed in 1953. It lies within the London Borough of Hackney, although the rest of the green is part of the London Borough of Islington.
