The London Course: Exploring Growing Village Suburbs

The growth of London in recent centuries entailed the swallowing up of small villages deep in the countryside.

This course will examine what have now become extensive London boroughs. Each which will be described in lectures followed by walks through these historic areas and each should be treated as an integrated pair of topics.

Walk through Hampstead

The concentration of our visit will be on the Georgian and Regency elements. We will see Church Row, the parish church, and the graveyard where our focus will be on John Constable's tomb and that of Harrison, the father of the settlement of longitude. We will explore the area of the Wells, including one of Constable's houses, and then into the Regency where at Keats House, the poet created his most famous works.
