Reasons for trip

During October 2011, we visited two National Trust properties in Hampstead north London. These properties are within convenient walking distance of each other. The first property we visited was Fenton House. This is an historic property, and houses an collection of musical instruments, mainly harpsichord and similar. They also have a collection of art, including some donated by the actor Peter Barkworth. We were lucky that the rain ceased, and we were able to enjoy the garden, on our visit. The paths, of the garden are winding, and thereby make the gaden appear bigger than it actual size. They grow their own fruit, and had apple juice from the garden on sale.

We then walked down hill to the smaller National Trust property of 2 Willow Road. This was the home built by architect Erno Goldfinger in 1939 for his family. It is a modernist style home and is a contrast to the historical property. You can view a film show, before entering, and are shown round on a guided tour. Here also there is a collection of art, in the modern art style, as befits the house. The art also belonged to Erno Goldfinger. A most interesting and contrasting day out.
