Highbury Corner

Highbury Corner is the large grass and tree covered square roundabout located at the top of Upper Street that also feeds off onto St Paul's Road, Cannonbury Road, and Holloway Road. Hanging off the left is Highbury and Islington Station, and it's a stones throw from [Highbury Fields]?.

Highbury Corner was completely obliterated during the second world war, reduced to a large crater by a german bomb. It was rebuilt from the forked shape it held then to the square surrounded by multiple lanes of trafic it is now.

Islington council often put odd Christmas lights in the centre of the rountabout - in '02 they covered the trees with odd neon tubes.
