Writer, Londonphile and intimidatingly prolific blogger Christopher Fowler recently noted my post on the London terraced house on his own excellent blog, adding intriguingly that:
‘Looking into the subject a bit more, I found that the terraced rooms and gardens are all percentages of those [9th century] measurements, making everything look neat and tidy even when it’s not.’
His recommended related reading on the subject is Harry Mount‘s ‘A Lust for Window Sills: A Lover’s Guide to British Buildings from Portcullis to Pebble Dash’.
Fowler’s site is what led me to yours. I’m a huge fan of his, and now, yours!
Mr Fowler makes reference to the “arse-end of the Holloway Road”. Which end is your money on? Archway or Highbury.
Hi Lisa, Welcome to the Great Wen.
BB, I think Holloway Road is one of those with an arsehole at both ends.
