San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We will look at how Stoke Newington developed from a prosperous country village to an inner-city borough. Starting with its 16C church and amazing cemetery posing as an arboretum; an ingenious Jacobean solution to the capital’s water shortage; a fine 18C country house; and along the way the haunts of famous dissenters and radicals including Mary Wollstonecraft, Letitia Barbould and Daniel Defoe. Led by John Finn of City Highlights.
This walk is a repeat of the 12 June.
