A Walk through Highgate: Experiments in Urban Living

8 June 2019


St Anne’s Close designed by Walter Segal, 1952

Meeting: Opposite the Woodman Pub, Highgate

Discover some of Highgate’s twentieth century housing developments in this historic walk through Highgate. We will pass émigré architect Berthold Lubetkin’s iconic High Point flats, learn about Highgate’s early history, walk through Waterlow Park and learn of its conception, pass Highgate Cemetery where Karl Marx is buried and explore Abraham Davis’s Holly Lodge Estate and the émigré architect, Walter Segal’s 1950s St Anne’s Close. It crosses the boundary in several places between Haringay and Camden.

Led by Marilyn Greene
