The Heath Guest Book

Would LOVE to be able to contact the lady who said she lived in the dairy at Kenwood.
My mother spent many happy times there staying with my great uncle, William (Squelch), in the dairy. He also was a key keeper/groundsman there and the two girls also worked in the café.
Think this must have been in the late twenties or thirties.
My great aunt, Dorothy, also worked as a nanny in the 'great house' at Kenwood.

Your page on Christ Apostolic Church, Highgate Road, shows a postcard of "St. John's Church, Highgate." The postcard is actually of St. John's Holloway, St. John's Grove/Pemberton Gardens, and still stands as such. I thought I'd bring it to your attention.

Thank you for creating this wonderful website.

I have had the incredible privilege of living in the Hampstead area most of my adult life, the Vale of Health then 30 years between the Heath Extension and Golders Hill Park. I consider myself to be reasonably knowledgeable of the nooks and crannies of Hamsptead Village, Kenwood and, of course, our exquisite Heath. I have also worked in either Hampstead or Highgate most of my working life. Despite all this familiarity I never cease to be surprised by the discovery of a beautiful Georgian alley or the hawthorn outline of an ancient lane. Quite inexplicably I only recently explored the West Heath and was surprised by its size and beauty

Hampstead Village, the Heath, North End and Kenwood are all truly enchanted, almost uncanny places and your website has reminded me of my love for them all.

Thank you so much for your amazing photographs and information. May Hampstead and her Heath be forever unspoiled.

SJL

It's really useful to find so much information brought together within a single website.

A small correction, please! Within the History pages, the MBW is referred to as being the Metropolitan Water Board. It was, of course, the Metropolitan Board of Works - not quite the same thing ...

Thank you very much for your wonderful website, which is almost as diverse and interesting as the Heath itself.

Can I suggest you mention that the famous statistician and geneticist R.A. Fisher lived at Inverforth House. You have probably seen his blue plaque there.

Lived in the area for 22 years. My parents enjoyed the whole of Hampstead Heath as children; then introduced my brother and I to its wonders. There is no place like it, it's fantastic to have had the pleasure of living there. My mother recently passed away and I now see it as my duty to maintain certain traditions, by revisiting the area with the grandchildren - who also love it. May it continue to belong to the people! Great site for nostalgic value.

What a wonderful site. It has brought back so many wonderful memories of Hampstead and Highgate. I had to leave Highgate 40 years ago. Would you please let me know if it would be possible to buy copies from your site. My very best wishes to you all, and thank you

Last month we visited the beautifull park and we met the lovely friendly and funny dog Daisy a few times.
She was playing with two balls in her mouth and kicked the third one with her leg. We have met her near the gate of Parliamentor Hill. I promised to send a photograph of her, wearing a rain coat as well!!
Can you please give me the mail adress to whom I can send the photograph??
Lots of greetings, (grandmother) Maria, grandmother of Alexandra and Marcus
