What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Islington

Yes, I have been watching Islington develop rapidly over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. I am also a serious amateur history buff and didn’t realise how ancient this part of London was back in the old days! It seems Islington is a kindred spirit to our native Camden. Islington is making steps foward into the Governments Islington Transport Strategy which sets out Islington’s long-term vision to make transport in the borough healthy, fair and enjoyable, they have begun creating a  new Crossrail station  at Farringdon as well as significant public realm enhancements and pedestrian safety measures outside the station which is all. the more reason to live there.

More History...

Forming along the path of the Great North Road, the Borough of Islington began as a village named “Giseldone” from the Saxons, otherwise known as “Gisla’s Hill”.  The village quickly became more important as a source for the city’s water, and this also made it a good place for growing vegetables that supplied London with food.  Eventually, the village was absorbed into Greater London as the city grew into the surrounding communities.  Today it is a major home to restaurants, pubs, shops, and other important aspects of the city.  

The area of Angel is Islington originated with the Angel Inn, which opened in 17th Century and by 1903 came to mean the Angel Hotel.  Angel became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Islington in 1900, which joined with the Metropolitan Borough of Finsbury in 1965 to become the London Borough of Islington.  The Angel tube station is named for the area and is featured in the London edition of Monopoly.  In Neil Gaiman’s story “Neverwhere” the fallen angel Islington is named for both the area and the borough.
