Ah, fabulous London. Ever wondered about the histories of your favourite streets? This year I wrote secret histories for Time Out for Cambridge Heath Road, Pitfield Street, Marchmont Street, Lamb’s Conduit Street, Essex Road and Hanbury Street.

I had so much fun with these that I went on to profile all the traders on Lamb’s Conduit Street in a 500-year anniversary magazine for the Rugby School.
