Bloomsbury Walk

Members gathered at Persephone Books      in Lamb's Conduit Street, Bloomsbury, on 17 June, 2018 for a walk around the area led by Geraldine Perriam, BJ Rahn and Francesca Wade.  We looked at places in Bloomsbury where DLS lived and places mentioned in DLS's short stories and novels.  We looked at 12 Great Ormond Street - or 12A, as it is known in the books - home of Charles Parker and the blue plaque in Great James Street, where DLS lived.  Mecklenburgh Square resident and member, BJ Rahn, led us into the Square's Garden.  DLS lived in Mecklenburgh Square, as did her fictional character, Harriet Vane.  Francesca Wade spoke to us about other women writers of Mecklenburgh Square such as Virginia Woolf. 

Further details of the walk are available in the members' Bulletin for July, 2018.
