No. 31 West Hill, Highgate, the childhood home (not, as is sometimes stated, his birthplace) of the late poet laureate, John Betjeman (1906-84)

He wrote his first poetry in the house, presenting his teacher, TS Eliot, with a volume when he was 10 years old. In his verse autobiography, Summoned by Bells, he wrote: “Deeply I loved thee, 31 West Hill”.
