Highgate Parish church of St Michael
A suburban village on the Great North Road, four and half miles from King's Cross by the great North railway, Highgate and Edgware line. Inns include Gate House, opposite the Grammar School; Wrestlers and Red Lion at the north end of the town; Fox and Crown, West Hill. Highgate occupies the summit of Hampstead's "sister hill," at the junction of the old two main northern roads, - from Oxford Street by way of Tottenham Court Road, and Islington through Holloway, - the summit being reached by the steep acclivities of Highgate Rise and Highgate Hill. The two roads meet in the High Street, where begins the North Town, a broad highway lined with private dwellings, shops, and inns, and having at the commencement the Grammar School on one side, the Gate House tavern on the other, and terminating in the slope of North Hill. The Green, bordered by groves of ancient elms, seems to have been the centre of the origin village, and the place where the villages met for rural games and holidays diversions. Thus the Whitsun Morris-dancers, in "Jack Drum's Entertainment," 1601 sing - "Let us be seene on Hygate Green, To dance for the honour of Holloway".
Highgate church, St Michael, stands some little distance south of the old chapel and the school, facing the entrance to the Grove. It is of white brick and stone, well-built, spacious, and lofty; comprises nave and aisles with clerestorey, butresses, crocketed pinnacles, and pierced parapet, chancel with large five-light east window, and at the west end a tower and octagonal stone spire. the stye is an impure perpendicular, it was consecrated in November 1832. The architect was Mr Lewis Vulliamy. Occupying nearly the highest point of Highgate Hill, its tall spire is conspicuous for miles around. The interior of the church is convenient, and well-kept, but in no way remarkable,
