Spring is here at last so come and enjoy some fresh air and see the trees bursting into leaf - and enjoy some history too!

 

 

SATURDAY 21 MAY 10 am:  BRACKENBURY VILLAGE    Tucked away just north of Hammersmith’s King Street is this fascinating residential area, the workmen’s cottages remain but a former aircraft factory is now offices and it was where one of England’s most famous sculptors had his studio.

MONDAY 23 MAY 10 am:  BROOK GREEN This hidden green in Hammersmith has been home to many famous residents, nearby is where the D Day invasion was planned more than seventy-five years ago.

TUESDAY 31 MAY 10 am:   CHISWICK MALL AND RIVERSIDE.  Fine houses line this riverside walk, famous people rest in the graveyard of St. Nicholas church and as traffic rushes along a major road, tucked away nearby is one of the smallest squares in London.

 

BOOKS ABOUT WEST LONDON

I have also written some books which take you on a photographic and historical trip around west London and make a perfect Christmas gift so do contact me if you would like a signed copy, special price £20.   The titles in the “Wild about” series cover the following areas:   Chelsea, Fulham, Hammersmith with Brook Green, Shepherd’s Bush with Askew Road, Notting Hill with North Kensington, Richmond, Kew. 

PRIVATE WALKS

London is my home and west London is where I have lived for most of my life, my walks are informal, full of interesting and unusual facts and, most of all, are to be enjoyed. If you would like a private walk, maximum six people, I am very happy to arrange this for a day and time to suit you, email me for more information.

Most walks take about two hours and a donation of £10 is suggested which goes towards supporting two local charities, The Upper Room and Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, they have suffered over recent months due to the lockdowns so any additional donation is very welcome.

Keep safe.
