|Alighting at Camden Station|
Here's a bit about the 'journey' house for which Number 23 is the identification (and from it too)
I mentioned a couple of weeks back that we'd watched the film The Lady in the Van it ended with a shot of the house that the action was centred on and a fictional' blue plaque being unveiled.
So decided to seek out the house where Alan Bennett lived at the time of the story - seems it's now used by a photographer but I snapped it anyway (you can see and hear more from Alan here)
The film (and story) were interesting in that they were also about the relationship between Alan and his mother running parallel with 'The Lady'.
The visit also revealed to me how close Camden is to the 'West End' on a bright winter's day it made for a lovely walk - although I did sort of get moved along when taking photo's in some posh areas (more about the walk soon).
|And Gloucester Gate is adorned beautifully|
What is staggering is the splendour of the Nash terraces - the one in Gloucester Gate particularly stood out (and has been noted by others) it's a lot more exclusive than Gloucester Crescent.
|The Matilda Statue also on my walk|
|And more contemporary in Camden|
The fund continues to accumulate.

That DoorWell here it is after all that fuss - but a picture I like anyway
|NW1 sounds better than Camden|
