DATE Wednesday February 25th at 7.30pm
TALK Hidden Gardens of London
VENUE Uplyme Village Hall
Bob Ayers’ illustrated talk ‘Hidden Gardens of London’ includes such gems as Fountain Court in Middle Temple, featured in Charles Dickens’ Martin Chuzzlewit, and St Mary Aldermanbury Garden in Love Lane EC2 with its imposing bust of Shakespeare.
Bob’s knowledge stems from his 30-year career in the City of London police force when, in his spare time, he qualified as a tour guide, cultivating a special knowledge of London’s gardens. He still finds time to conduct London tours in between his current vocation as a legal aid lawyer and the quieter life of running a smallholding with his wife in Burton Bradstock.
