Arkley is now a village in the London Borough of Barnet. It consists of a long village strung out between Barnet and Stirling Corner, roughly centred on the "Gate" pub, and is composed of the ancient hamlets of Barnet Gate, Rowley Green and Arkley hamlet. It is located 10.6 miles (17.1 km) north-northwest of Charing Cross (a basis for measuring distances in the centre of London), and at 482 feet (147 m) above sea level is one of the highest points in London. It is also home to one of the oldest windmills in southern England.
