Hopped off the bus outside Highgate School, and walked to the roundabout.Mariana Trench14/09/2019
After a lovely walk through Hamstead Heath I reached this roundabout, at the top of Highgate. It's an obvious top, and a good pub overlooking the high point Didn't have the bravery to visit the roundabout itselfChinnockC20/10/2018
