Due to the predicted bad weather, this walk has been postponed until 2024
Starting with Domesday, when the Manor consisted of vineyards and pigs, the story moves via Civil War fortifications to the strong intellectual, educational, and medical presence, alongside tales of the Bloomsbury Group. While discussing one of London’s most notable landlords, the Bedford Estate, we will also discover the oldest square in London, plans for a Nazi HQ in London and a Church linked to a Roman temple in Lebanon.
In terms of individuals there will be plenty to introduce, including Edwin Lutyens, Millicent Fawcett and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson.
Yet there is more to Bloomsbury than meets the eye, so we will also discover telephone exchanges, “Penny Policies”, the preparations for D-Day and coal hole covers.
The Walk will be led by Meg Ryder, a Londoner who hails from Pimlico and now lives in Camberwell. Meg is a qualified solicitor who left the law to establish bespoke walking tours in London to follow her passion for all things historical, artistic and architectural. Meg has a Masters in History from Edinburgh University, and studied History of Art and Architectural History in Rome.
The walk will begin at 10.30am in the centre of Bloomsbury Square. This event is for members only.
