Friday 11 January and Sunday 27 January

Passport to Pimlico – mainly Cubitt but with a sprinkle of the 20th century

IMG_20181206_125746

The Pimlico we see today is largely down to the vision of one man, Thomas Cubitt, who planned the area for the Duke of Westminster in the early 19th century. In this walk we see some of Cubitt’s streets and squares but also some of the interesting 20th century additions, such as the colossal 1930s Dolphin Square apartment development and the innovative 1960s Lillington Gardens council estate. Plus we hear about some of the well known residents, from victorian illustrator Aubrey Beardsley to fashion designer Laura Ashley as well as politicians from Oswald Mosley to Winston Churchill.

Join me for a fascinating stroll through one of central London’s lesser known districts.

One thought on “Come on one of my walks …

  1. Just reminiscing about my childhood in SW 18 I used to live on the east hill estate near st georges hospital dad had a shop in st John’s hill called the radio shack (not the USA one) used to walk to clapham junction and the other way to the high street to the Arndale centre then onto king georges park in the 70s I used to go to Eltringham school near that concrete roundabout – dare say east hill has been redeveloped by now? Hated the smell of hops from the Brewery !
