Cromwell House, Highgate
Cromwell House, Highgate
An impressive early C17 house with 7 bays set above Highgate Hill LinkExternal link . There have been additions since, like the C18 doorcase and the C19 cupola. The house was built for Richard Sprignall who, like the illustrious John Gilpin, was a trainband (militia) captain, which would presumably have put him on Cromwell's side in the civil war, but the name of the house arrived only in 1833, when it became a school and later a convalescent home for sick children.
