It wasn’t all as relaxed as this indicates…
but the biscuits were lovely!
I have spent a happy afternoon photographing Hampstead Garden Suburb which I have been studying over the past year. It was dsigned around the same time as Hollins Hill, the original name of the Haworth, and to the same Arts & Crafts principles. The master planners were Sir Raymond Unwin and Barry Parker, who also jointly designed Letchworth Garden City while Wythenshaw, Manchester was designed by Barry Parker. Hampstead is the most famous of all the pioneer Garden Suburbs and its buildings, layouts, gardens and planting are all intensely artistic in their design.
St. Jude’s Church above was designed by Edwin Lutyens, “the Brierley of the south” (to reverse how Walter Brierley who designed the Haworth, is often described).
