Return to London Road via Mount Park Road and Mount Park Avenue and enter Harrow on the Hill via the High Street…
On your right you’ll see the old Toll Gate Cottage whose name dates to the 19th century when turnpike trusts with toll gates barring the roads were set up. 
As you enter the Green you’ll see a popular restaurant on your right adorned with two cornucopia in niches. This building dates from 1912 when it opened as a dance hall and variety theatre, later becoming ‘The Elite’ - a small cinema.
In November 1931 it was updated and re-named ‘The Cosy’. 
Finally in 1937 at the time of the Coronation of King George VI it became ‘The Carleton’, before closing in 1939 when larger cinemas opened downhill in Harrow. It remained derelict until after the end of the second world war before being gutted and re-fitted as the first in a series of restaurants.
Walk a little further past this restaurant…
This area around the Green was the site of several Council buildings - 'West View' was the District Surveyor's office. 
The other Harrow Heritage plaque is across the road above what is now an estate agent’s office. This was the Fire Station. 
The King’s Head ‘former public house and hotel is believed to  have been built in the late 18th century on the site of King Henry VIII's hunting lodge. It survived until about 2001 before being converted into flats.
