Name and origin
The borough name, as well as its conurbations of Harringay and Hornsey, derive from Haeringes-hege, the enclosure belonging to Saxon chief Haering. [Londonist.com]
Haringey is one of London’s most diverse areas, with an estimated 193 languages spoken in the borough. Economically speaking the borough is a contrasting place, with areas such as Muswell Hill and Highgate among the wealthiest in the country, while the Eastern half is home to some of the 10% most deprived people in the UK. All this means that there are plenty of architectural challenges to go around in Haringey, whether taking advantage of the wooded high ground to the west and north of the borough, or improving life and living in the densely populated eastern areas. One architectural curiosity that epitomises the character of the borough lies in the famous Victorian Highgate Cemetery. Here lie the remains of Karl Marx, the master of Leftist thinking and founder of Socialism, ironically it’s steeped in splendour, under an enormous granite and gold memorial, topped with an effigy of the man himself.
Facts and landmarks
- Haringey is the fourth most deprived borough in London.
- It is home to Highgate Cemetery which is the resting place of sculptor and painter Henry Moore and political theorist Ralph Miliband.
- Haringey is home to the beautiful Alexandra Palace, affectionately known locally as Ally Pally. Well worth a visit.
Haringey planning department
You will probably need planning permission if you want to build something new, make a major change to your home – e.g. building an extension, or change the use of your property. There are different rules depending on what you want to do and the relevant planning policy that applies to your property. At GOAStudio we have a proud record of dealing with the local authority planners and building control inspectors and we are on hand to assist with your application and successfully handle every stage of your project.
