Love Walk, Camberwell

18Aug11

Mentioned in the Doomsday book, Camberwell in South London was originally a tiny village in the county of Surrey. It’s steeped in history and was once home to the poet Robert Browning, who was born in Rainbow cottage in 1812, and  John Ruskin, artist, critic and writer, who moved to Camberwell in 1823. Creative types are still very much attracted to the area. Well known residents include Brit Award-winning Florence Welch from rock band Florence & the Machine and celebrated Irish playwright Martin McDonagh.  Elegant period properties with such pretty street names are a definite pull factor.
