Highbury Manor

Categories: Architecture

It was built for the Lord of the Priory of St John of Jerusalem. The site may have been used by the Romans as a summer camp. It was destroyed by the mob led by Jack Straw during the Peasants' Revolt, who were 'so offended by the wealth and haughtiness' of the Knights Hospitallers.
