Highgate Bowl under threat - again

For most of its fifty years’ existence the Society has been battling to

preserve the several acres of open land behind the High Street shops

known as the Highgate Bowl where the old garden centre is situated.

This is to preserve a wonderful green open space which also has historic

importance as perhaps the last survivor of the drovers’ pastures for the

use of flocks being driven through Highgate to London markets. The

Society has supported a new charity, the Friends of the Highgate Bowl,

set up to acquire land in the Bowl for public use.
