A day in Muswell Hill

Vee and I spent a most enjoyable day visiting a a couple of friends in the north London district of Muswell Hill. The two friends had never met each other before we introduced them but live almost round the corner from one another.
Muswell Hill has a character of its own, shaped by the location on top of a high hill, the predominance of Edwardian architecture, the absence of a tube station nearby, and the presence of lots of cafes, restaurants and shops. We had hot drinks in the local Maison Blanc, bought a book in a large independent bookshop, the originally named “Muswell Hill Bookshop”, and ate lunch in a converted church, a branch of O’Neills.
After the wettest month on record, today was dry and bright, so we could stroll around at leisure.
