DuchessOfCambridge

Thursday 26th April 2018

Its the 'Last Thursday of the Month' drinks of 2018 on Thurs 26th April and as ususal we are at the Duchess Of Cambridge on Stamford Brook Road. 

The agenda will follow the normal random process!  People will arrive through the evening from 7PM but feel free to join us at any point in the evening. Lots of time to discuss the proposed changes to the cycle layout in Stamford Brook and catch up on the progress of the Stamford Brook History Project.   See the article below!   More info on it here: www.stamfordbrook.org.uk/stamford-brook-house-histories 

We have a new map available to play with showing a live feed of all the listed properties in Stamford Brook & Ravenscourt Park.  The map is fully interactive and allows you to click on an icon and pull up a picture and description of the building in question.

The map was put together by data and mapping expert Dan Cookson - @danc00ks0n - using a data set that has been made available to developers by English Heritage.  The map also includes information on the Blue Plaques in the area using data made available by openplaques.org.   Dan's map actually covers the whole of the UK but he has kindly shared the Stamford Brook section with us.

William Bowyer 1926 - 2015

Born in Staffordshire in 1926, Bowyer trained as an artist at night while toiling in a coal mine during the day as a Bevin Boy. At the Royal College of Art he was taught by those great advocates for figurative art in Britain, Ruskin Spear and Carel Weight—mentors who went on to become life-long friends. His work is firmly rooted in the nitty-gritty of everyday life and tied to very specific places—particularly the Thames near his London home in Chiswick and the Suffolk coast between Dunwich and Southwold. He put down deep roots in both places and until his recent serious illness was noted for being out and about with his paints and easel at all times of day and in all weathers.
