London Architecture Designs – chronological list
Frognal is an area of Hampstead, North West London in the London Borough of Camden. Frognal is also the name of the major road in the area, the lower end of which winds uphill from Finchley Road and at its upper end (north of Church Row) forms the western edge of Hampstead Village.
The first reference to Frognal is as a tenement in the 15th century, probably on the site of the later Frognal House (now 99 Frognal). By the mid-eighteenth century it was a significant settlement, sought after by eminent lawyers, and infill development continued through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
The Labour Party leader Hugh Gaitskell lived at 10 Frognal and ran a salon of influence in the 1940s, and as Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1950. General Charles de Gaulle lived from 1942 to 1944 in 99 Frognal.
