Hugh Myddelton's house

Inscription

Myddelton Corner
Here stood the house of Sir Hugh Myddelton. Built 1595. Rebuilt 1891.

H. Huntly-Gordon {illegible but possibly 'FRIBA'}. 

This integral plaque is on the corner between the ground and first floor windows.

Site: Hugh Myddelton bust (2 memorials)

N1, Upper Street, 140-3

We have seen other websites where this building is confused with Myddelton Hall, which is the building further up Almeida Street, now used as the Almeida Theatre.  Our building, heavily decorated with terracotta details, is described in detail at British Listed Buildings.  As well as Sir Hugh on the corner, between the first and second floor windows, it carries a number of other relief busts and other figures depicting more than the usual number of joker characters but none of the others are portraits, as far as we can tell.
