The Parish Lock-up can be found on Cannon Lane along with the cannon barrels that mark the edge of the curb; and the Watch House is at the top of Holly Walk, just round the corner from R.L. Stevenson’s House.
Committee members Frank Harding and Juliette Sonabend, who have been driving the work forward, are to be congratulated for all their hard work.
Whose homes were they, and where can you find them?
You may also have noticed that some of Hampstead’s historic street signs are also looking in rude health. That too is down to the hard work of Juliette who has photographed and catalogued every street sign in Hampstead: noting chipped and damaged tiles, missing letters, multiple typefaces at single junctions etc. And then successfully lobbying Camden to do something about it!
Photos of the restored street signs and further details about this work will be posted on the web site in due course.
