Society member Robert Maurice Williams will lead members past the beautiful homes of literary residents of Hampstead; Lytton Strachey, Keats, Mary Stopes, Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell to name but a few. We will see the house where Samuel Taylor Coleridge retreated to to recover from his opium addiction and was then lived in by J.B. Priestley and now Kate Moss.
We will meet at Hampstead Tube Station at 10.30. Depending on how fast we move it will be about 3 miles in length. We will stop for coffee and lunch. Donations of £5 to the Society on joining the walk, there is no need to book. We look forward to seeing you.
The sun shone and members met to have a delightful walk around Hampstead. We passed many houses of interest due to their past residents, architectural design and the information from the Hampstead brown and blue plaques. It was a most informative morning, in good company. Part of the walk took us up to onto Parliament Fields, so named as Guy Fawkes had planned to stand there with his friends and watch Parliament burn.
