History

The Pryors was originally a farm house (owned by the Pryors family) situtated on the edge of Hampstead Heath; you can spot it (probably) on some of Constable’s paintings of the area, and on old prints. If you look at the plan of the block on the registered land or charge certificate for your flat, you will see that the outline of the old buildings is shown. The architect, Paul Waterhouse, designed the two new blocks. Block A (the upper one ) was built first, in 1904. Block B followed in 1910. Many of the original period features remain intact.

The newspaper clipping in the images below dated 6 June 1902 advertises the sale of the original farm house 2 years before the building of Block A.
