Sir Hugh Myddleton

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.

We double checked the "1881" - that is what is carved, it's not our mistype. She was born September 1880.
