The Viking Store, Wood Street, #Walthamstow. Sans Vikings.

I love this building. Former public house in Dalston, left all alone... #architecture #heritage

Yesterday, I researched on the other side of this building. Recognise it? #archives

Photobombed! Trying to get a nice snowy shot of the C15 & C19 buildings from window view #Walthamstow

Still trying to downsize my books...I have four I no longer want. Not entirely sure why I have them! Any takers?

View from my window...that's a C15 house peeping round the side of early C19 house, just so you know. #walthamstow

Selling Ikea hall space saving unit- v. handy but no longer required- anyone? #Walthamstow #awesomestow

Clothing experts: I have a Travilla matt leather bustier (?1980s ). Quite pristine. Is it anything special?

Had a lovely catch-up with fellow house/ bdg historians on Friday

I often come across weird & wonderful placenames during archival research...they do make you wonder!

So, I went to Stonehenge last weekend...boiing!

Hello Twitter- we rescued a mouse. Well, we think it's a mouse...but someone said it might be a degu! Can you ID?

The redevelopment at #Walthamstow Station... The station building, built 1870 is unlisted...
