The History of Arkley
(Arkley, EN5 & NW7, London Borough of Barnet, Greater London)
Arkley is a village in the London Borough of Barnet. It is located 10.6 miles (17.1 km)
north-west of Charing Cross, and at 482 feet (147 m) above sea level is one of the highest points in London.
Arkley Windmill was in use by 1806. It is marked as "corn" windmill on the Ordnance Survey of the 1860s . From photographs,
it appears to have had only two of its original sails by the 1890s, by which time it may have been powered by steam. It ceased
to be a functioning mill during World War I, and was restored in 1930, but not as a working mill.
According to the old article displayed on one of its walls, The Gate was once visited by Anna Pavlova and her dancing troop.
Until the early 1960s a large tree grew up from the floor of the pub and out through the roof.
