Where Dick Whittington heard the bells of Bow Church telling him to “turn again” and become “thrice Lord Mayor of London”.

The Whittington Stone is an 1821 monumental stone and statue of a cat at the foot of Highgate Hill, a street, in Archway. It marks roughly where it is recounted that a forlorn Dick Whittington, returning to his home from the city of London after losing faith as a scullion in a scullery, heard Bow Bells ringing from 4 1⁄2 miles (7.2 km) away, prophesying his good fortune leading to the homage “Turn again Whittington, thrice Lord Mayor of London!” This quotation and a short history of the man cover two faces of the stone. The pub next to it is of the same name.
