Quality Grade 1 Listed Building Surveyor in your Area

Situated in Greater London, England, the extensive Middlesex village of Islington is a mostly residential district of Inner London. Its original name was given by the Saxons (Giseldone) in 1005 and mean's 'Gisla's Hill', Gisla is an Old English name which mutated to Isledon and eventually to the modern form that we recognise today around the 17th century.
