On Radio London

I had another little piece read out today, by Robert Elms on Radio London. It was a tiny smidgeon of an article about the historical significance of the name 'Whetstone' which is a part of North London, so far out it's almost in Hertfordshire. Whetstone is, supposedly, named after the stone which the soldiers used to sharpen their swords during the Battle of Barnet, in the Wars of the Roses - it was fought on nearby Barnet Common. The stone is still there, outside the Griffin Pub. Is it true? Who knows. Is it great that we treasure that kind of tale in this great City. Yea!
