Highgate Wood

This enchanting area of woodland is maintained and preserved by the City of London, and a team of energetic volunteers.

Two thousand years ago a Roman pottery thrived here, and later when it became the property of the Bishop of London deer and wild boar ran free. Old tracks are visible when the sun pierces the treetop canopy, through which bats can be seen flitting at night.

The leyline continues from Hillcrest to these woods, where a tall pitch-black figure has been seen gliding among the trees.
