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

WEDNESDAY 15 June 10 am:  WEST KENSINGTON    During the nineteenth century a couple of speculative builders developed former orchards and market gardens and it became home to a famous artist, a family of musicians, several authors and an otter (and his owner), St. Paul's Boys School and the depository for a well-known London store.

SATURDAY 25 June 10am:  BARONS COURT  This walk will take us through an old graveyard which is now a haven for flora and fauna, to the famous Queen’s Club and the church where Fulham Football Club was formed.

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.
Caroline
