Autumn Walk: A Stroll Through Time: BelSoc Historical Walk

Posted on 19/8/2021

If you’re free on Sunday 19 September, why not join us for an afternoon stroll that will transport you through centuries of local history?

Starting in Belsize Terrace, we’ll hear how a forest became farmland and then gentlemen’s country residences before being transformed into a middle-class suburb.  We’ll find out about Belsize House in its 18th century heyday as a fashionable pleasure garden before it declined into a “scandalous Lew’d House”.  We’ll see how housing fashions changed, who lived here and where they shopped, drank and worshipped. And we’ll finish at Belsize Library for tea, delicious cakes, and a chance to socialise.

Meet at Belsize Terrace at 3pm.
