Manor Heath

Kate Lycett is another artist whose site I came across by accident while surfing the internet in search of material on Manor Heath – John 2’s house in Manor Park. I am hoping that Kate will allow me to use an image of her artwork as a link to her website – which is certainly well worth a visit.


Her blog page, which includes her work on Manor Heath, is very interesting reading, and she has tracked down many of the few photographs of this historic house.


Perhaps the most telling, and distressing, is the one of the house’s demolition in 1958 – the year of my birth!
