Hooray for nuns, and magic water

In 1963 our family moved from London, England to New Zealand. I recall very little about where I was born and lived to the age of 8, but today thought to search out information. It turns out, it's rather cool:

Muswell Hill is a suburban district of north London. … It is between Highgate, Hampstead Garden Village, East Finchley and Crouch End. …

The earliest records of Muswell Hill date from the 12th century. The Bishop of London … owned the area and granted 65 acres (263,000 m²) … to a newly formed order of nuns. The nuns built a chapel on the site and called it Our Lady of Muswell.

The name Muswell is believed to come from a natural spring or well (the "Mossy Well"), said to have miraculous properties. A traditional story tells that Scottish king Malcolm IV was cured of disease after drinking the water. … The River Moselle, which has its source in Muswell Hill and Highgate, derives its name from this district …
