So much happens in central London getting to those outer zones doesn't happen very often. So time to explore a little further out. Muswell Hill is five and half miles north of central London in the borough of Haringey. Earliest records date back to the 12th century when the Bishop of London who owned the land allowed an order of nuns to build their chapel on the site.
The name Muswell originates from a natural spring, the "Mossey Well" that supposedly miraculously cured the King of Scotland after he drank the water.
The hazy view of London in the distance makes it feel even further away. It would have been very pretty when all farm land and trees 100's of years ago.
