Alleyways of Mortlake and East Sheen

Charles Hailstone



Alleyways has long been regarded as one of the most significant contributions to local history in the area and the Society has decided to reproduce it after being out of print for several years. Charles’s fascination with the Mortlake alleyways and his painstaking research culminated in publication of Alleyways in 1983. This is now regarded as a seminal work, which is essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in the history of the area. It is doubtful whether the development of a village has ever been examined in such detail from so unusual an angle. Charles had walked the streets of Mortlake and the uplands of Richmond Park, and his narrative leaves no doubt of his considerable powers of observation in linking the present terrain with the footpaths and fields of long ago.
