concept



Crouch End Hill is a street in north London, England, running between Crouch End and Hornsey Rise in the boroughs of Haringey and Islington. It is not to be confused with 'Crouch Hill" which runs between Crouch End and Stroud Green. (The two roads meet at a "Y" junction in Crouch End and together the two routes constitute the southern access to Crouch End Broadway). The street proceeds up a steep hill to the top of the ridge which here divides Haringey from Islington. (The old name for this ridge along which Hornsey Lane runs and which forms the northern boundary of the Parkland Walk between Crouch end Hill and Crouch Hill is the "hogs Back"") On the way up the hill on the right hand side can be found the "Lanacombe Sauna" briefly famous for a court case in 2000 in which the then owner was prosecuted as a brothel keeper.<ref>http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/madam-ran-pound75m-vice-empire-from-wheelchair-710848.html</ref> Further up, still on the right hand side as proceeding from Crouch End, can be seen Christchurch.
