Historically, Highgate adjoined the Bishop of London’s hunting estate. Highgate gets its name from these hunting grounds, as there was a high, deer-proof hedge surrounding the estate: ‘the gate in the hedge’. The bishop kept a toll-house where one of the main northward roads out of London entered his land.
