Event description

Description

Mary Wollstonecraft

Dissenters of Newington Green

For many years Newington Green was a tiny hamlet, far from London, where radical thinkers and dissenting religious groups came to escape the constricts of the City. You will hear how Newington Green became associated with some of the most important thinkers of the 18th century

Heres some of the things we talk about

  • Mary Wollstonecraft's pioneering school for girls
  • London's oldest houses
  • The man who was sent for execution once a year
  • A forgotten graveyard
  • Anne Boleyn's unfortunate romance
  • The chapel that inspired American revolutionaries, philosophers and physicists

Whether you live in the area or youv'e never been there before you'll be sure to enjoy the stories about remarkable people on a walk led by a qualified Islington guide.

The walk starts at the Lady Mildmay pub, in Newington Green. You can check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner.
