Chelsea Past by Barbara Denny


This popular book, now in a new third printing, vividly describes one of London's most attractive areas. Chelsea grew up as a riverside village, its old church near to the homes of Thomas More and Henry VIII. Wren's Royal Hospital added an architectural gem. Behind the much changed King's Road are numerous streets of charming architecture. Barbara Denny's book relates and illustrates the history of many of the interesting substantial buildings.
