HISTORY

Highgate Newtown is hard to pin down. Modernist utopia or architectural aberration?

Eighty years after escaping the Holocaust on the Kindertransport, two north London women who saw Hitler’s ascent have recalled the creeping rise of fascism – and warned of the risks of history repeating itself.

When you think of London’s most striking medieval architecture it can be easy to consider Westminster Abbey and ignore gems further north, but Dr Ellie Pridgeon reckons Camden has ecclesiastical history – some still standing – that blows Westminster out of the water.

Annie S Swan was a noted suffragist and novelist but, from her Camden Square home, she was also friend and confidant to a generation of anxious and lonely women – she was the agony aunt for The Woman at Home magazine.

A Routemaster bus will take 72 passengers on a journey through Greek Cypriot history, via Camden and Holloway, on Sunday.

This year’s Remembrance Day will see a remarkable multi-faith ceremony bring together the Highgate community to remember the horrors of the First World War on the centenary of its conclusion.

When Acland Burghley schoolteachers Celia Greenwood and Teresa Noble were hopefully asking around Camden for a space to hold arts classes back in 1978, they hardly imagined the impact their charity would have on the local community.
