A Suburban Wander around Muswell Hill, London N10

Still not being able to shake off my, now not so recently discovered, love of Psychogeography, and with a couple of hours free one evening after work, I ventured up to Muswell Hill. It's one of those places in North London which is not really served by a convenient underground station, and getting there generally requires either a reasonable hike from the nearest tube station or a bus. The former Muswell Hill train station now long gone, and instead replaced by a school. The weather was not great so I was in two minds about going, but quite glad I did, despite getting soaked at one point, finding my micro-umbrella barely up to the job of keeping me dry.

Anyway, enough of me moaning about the weather. My wander started with a couple of views down the hill and across London, with beautiful houses lining the streets.

Nice to see an old sign still in use. If you look closely you can see that it's actually made with pieces of metal riveted on to a metal back board. I particularly like the lamp, positioned somewhat awkwardly to illuminate the sign at night.

Fortis Green Road is probably my favourite road in Muswell Hill, with its neat parade of shops with beautiful curved window frontages.

This church is quite incredible and towers massively above anything else around it.
