What we know about Highbury
Highbury is part of the area now known as Islington. The name of Highbury originates from the name of an old manor house which was built on a hill around 1271. The manor house has been destroyed and rebuilt several times and has an eventful history. The house was finally demolished in 1938, and is now the site of Eton House flats, built by the Old Etonian Housing Association in 1939.
The area suffered a lot of war damage so large-scale rebuilding also occurred after the war, including new municipal housing, although some buildings were listed to protect their status. Gentrification in the area followed the housing boom in the early 1980s, and property prices have increased significantly since then.
The Woolwich Arsenal FC moved to Highbury in 1913, and dropped “Woolwich” from its name, and the football stadium has traditionally been referred to as Highbury.
Highbury has an association with many famous bands who used the old Wessex Studios. Highbury Studios, was also used as a film/TV recording studio, but it was demolished in 1960. However, many TV personalities and presenters are still residents in the area.
The area is conveniently located for Central and North London, and it is only 11 minutes from our new self storage facility in Kings Cross.
