The Winchester, Highgate
The Winchester is a former public house at 206 Archway Road, Highgate, London N6 5BA.
In early 2016 locals campaigned to save the pub from a proposed residential redevelopment . While the campaign was successful, and the old building frontage remains undeveloped, The Winchester ceased operations as a pub in 2016.
It was built in 1881 as the Winchester Tavern, and it later became the Winchester Hall Hotel. The name derives from Winchester Hall, a nearby late 17th-century mansion.
