    ok this is my second report, after crystal palace I was on a high..wanted to do millenium mills with a fellow member but security were there.

    So decided this had to be done, im totally surprised this isn't full of graffiti, it was a really lovely walk about small but very chilled i could have stayed there for hours, so peaceful. (and no there wernt any chavs lol)

    A little bit of history (agin from Wikipedia)

    Highgate station was originally constructed by the Edgware, Highgate and London Railway in the 1860s on its line from Finsbury Park to Edgware. Before the line was opened it was purchased in July 1867 by the larger Great Northern Railway (GNR), whose main line from King's Cross ran through Finsbury Park on its way to Potters Bar and the north. The railway to Edgware opened as a single-track line on 22 August 1867.[2]
    Because of the hilly terrain, the station was built in a deep cutting excavated from Highgate Hill adjacent to Archway Road. Tunnels penetrated the hillside at each end of the station, leading to East Finchley to the north and Crouch End to the south.
