As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Archway.
History of Archway
Archway is an inner-city district of the London Borough of Islington, in Greater London. It is located around 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Charing Cross on the edge of the city. The area takes its name from the Archway Bridge, which carries Hornsey Road over Highgate Hill.
The origins of the name Archway are uncertain. It may be named after the nearby Tyburn Brook, which ran underneath the archway bridge and through what is now Archway station. Another possibility is that it was named after a local landowner called John Bayley, who built a brick arched gateway leading to his house called Bayley’s Mount, which stood on the site of the present-day Archway tube station.
The Archway area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. In the Middle Ages, it was part of the manor of Highgate, which was owned by the Bishop of London. The area remained rural until the 19th century, when it was developed as part of the suburban growth of London.
