have a cosy bonfire evening

the name Parliament Hill did not originate because of the houses of parliament, as they were not near here at all – legend states that Guy Fawkes planned to watch the destruction of Parliament from here in the gunpowder plot of 1605 – it was known as traitors hill.    probably a bit of a useless fact, but i do walk around london wondering how names of areas were derived.
