HAMPSTEAD LORE

 



This is the spot (so the legend goes) where Guy Fawkes was captured as he, in 1605, watched the skyline hoping to see the Houses of Parliament blow up in what was known as the Gunpowder Treason Plot.

Though not historically accurate, it is a good yarn (and a sweet view from Holly Bush Lane).

This, from an earlier trip to magical York (where Guy Fawkes was born)...


(My kinda Guy)



A lovely lane called Mount Vernon
