Blue Badge Guide, David Thompson led a fascinating tour of one London's best loved garden suburbs.
The creation of the Suburb marked a turning point in British town planning, and was highly influential in what was to became known as the Garden City Movement. The vision of Henrietta Barnett, the Suburb represents a utopian model community in which people of all classes might co-exist, often in economic co-reliance, in high-quality beautifully designed homes set within a verdant landscape.
Some of the great names of early twentieth century urban design and architecture - Raymond Unwin and Edwin Lutyens to name but two - practised within the Suburb, where are to be found examples of houses and flats which are considered to be the very best of English domestic architecture.
