Local Sights of North London: Muswell Hill, Wood Green,Hornsey and Highgate


Here are some Photo's of local architecture and scenery in North London

This is the view of Canary Wharf seen
from the Top of Hillfield Park Road
standing in Muswell Hill Broadway, N10



Eclipse over Rhodes Avenue,
                                                       Wood Green, N22

                                                             London Mennonite Library,
                                                                        Highgate N6
   Sewage Pumping Station,
                                                         Hornsey, N8


Did you ever wonder what was behind the locked wooden gate in Rhodes Avenue N22 with a sign on it saying "Danger", belonging to the Electricity Board?
To me it was one of life's unsolved mysteries for decades, and then a year ago it was unlocked for the first time in years, for maintenance purposes, and I nipped along and took a photo.  It made me so happy!

Helicopter circling to take off from - would you believe it - Muswell Hill Golf Course N22
(you can see the Club House in the background).  Very odd, and quite exceptional
