Bishopswood Road has long been one of the most desirable streets to live in Highgate. Highgate Village, with its characteristic Georgian fronted shops and the woodlands of Hampstead Heath are only half a mile away. The area is renowned for its high concentration of many of London’s top-performing independent schools.
Illustrious former occupants at number 16 include Archibald V. Hill, who shared the Nobel prize in Physiology in 1922. English Heritage will install a blue plaque, on completion of Hurstbourne, in commemoration of Hill’s work. Archibald lived at number 16 with his wife, Margaret Hill, the daughter of John Neville Keynes, a prominent figure at Cambridge University and sister to Maynard Keynes, the famous economist. Margaret was a key figure in local politics and set up Hill Homes in 1944, a housing association providing quality homes for elderly people. Margaret’s dedication was both nationally and internationally acclaimed and her work was publically recognised in 1957 when she was awarded a cbe.
