Biography

 I have lived in Kingston upon Thames for 45 years.  Having spent my working life as a secondary school teacher I trained as a guide upon retirement in 2005. Special interests include historical aspects of the City particularly Wren Churches, St Paul's Cathedral, the Guildhall, Guildhall Art Gallery  and Hidden London - Alleyways, gardens and quiet peaceful places in the City. I also give talks to National Trust Associations, U3A  and other groups within the M25 area.
