The beginning of a beautiful story...
Like every friendly community, New Southgate is home to some fascinating life stories. But perhaps one of the most interesting is that of Jerome K. Jerome, who lived in the area as a child and who went on to write Three Men in a Boat, one of the best-loved comic novels in English literature.
The book was his masterpiece. Published in 1889, it tells the story of three men and a dog on a boat trip along the Thames from Kingston through to Oxford.
Hugely popular in his lifetime, its dry humour and elegant wit have never faded and it has remained in print ever since it first appeared. Bringing a development of luxurious new apartments and houses to the heart of New Southgate, we knew that the lives lived here would lead to a new generation of stories, and so we thought we would pay tribute to Jerome’s literary legend by naming our development after his book.
Although there are three men at the heart of the story, there is only one hero. And that’s their dog, Montmorency.
