Guided History Tour

14 September, 2014 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Guided History Tour: Cricklewood Aerodrome and Clitterhouse Farm

Did you know there were regular flights from Cricklewood to Paris… in a converted bomber? Surely not!

Back due to popular demand after last year’s well received tour, local artist Alistair Lambert will lead an illustrated walking tour starting at and returning to Cricklewood Rail station via Claremont road, Brent Terrace and Clitterhouse Farm.

Explore the eastern block of Cricklewood and discover several sites of rapid historical change: from the fields that fed the growing city  to war factories and eventually model suburban living.

You will also meet some surprising characters along the way.

An enthusiastic and entertaining guide as well as an accomplished local artist, Alistair has made an artwork especially for this event that will be viewed for the first time as part of this tour.

No booking necessary.

Meet at Cricklewood Train Station at 3pm.  The tour will then walk up Claremont Road to Clitterhouse Farm.

The walk lasts up to two hours and will take place whatever the weather. Bring a brolly and a friend!
