Hampstead is the place to ruralise
                              Ritualise, extra-muralise
                              All on a summers day.

Music-hall song by Watkin Williams, ca 1863 

A new film from the heart of leafy suburbia:

Incidentally, Tennyson, the Poet Laureate, who is mentioned and quoted in the film, was a fairly frequent visitor to NW6. A keen student of astronomy, he used to star-gaze through the telescope erected in Sir Norman Lockyer’s garden in Fairfax Road (the same telescope through which Lockyer discovered helium in 1862).
A happy Easter to you all!
