A few photos taken this morning whilst walking from Highgate tube station to a site.
First : Jacksons Lane, Highgate

A theatre and dance studio in a former Wesleyan Methodist church. The early Gothic style red brick church building was designed by W. H. Boney of Highgate and opened in 1905. It closed as a church in 1976.

I then walked up Jacksons Lane and looking back there is a tree in the middle of the road.

Next the school mistresses House in in the centre of twelve former alms houses

Sir John Wollaston built six houses in 1658. By 1722 they had decayed and Edward Pauncefort rebuilt them as a a range of twelve houses.

Finally St. Michael’s Church.

The church stands higher than any other church in London. According to the website ( as you enter you are all but level with the cross on top of St. Paul’s Cathedral.  It was consecrated and opened for worship on 8th November 1832. The Architect was Lewis Vulliamy (1791-1871).  The builder was Cubitt who completed the construction of the neo-Gothic style building in eleven months.

Just before I got to site I came across an old Victorian post box
