Wansteadium reader Nigel Franceschi writes:
I am sure that many Wanstead residents will be aware by now that, for the past three and a half years, Dr Hannah Armstrong has been writing what will surely become the definitive book on the history of Wanstead House.
Due to be published by Liverpool University Press on behalf of Historic England in March 2022, ‘Wanstead House: East London’s Lost Palace’ will cover the history of the park, the house and its owners in unprecedented detail.
‘Wanstead House: East London’s Lost Palace’ will fascinate anyone who enjoys visiting Wanstead Park, or who has an interest in the history of the magnificent Palladian mansion that stood at its heart or who wants to learn more about the lives of the people who lived there. Whatever connection you may have to Wanstead Park, you will surely want to take advantage of this wonderful offer and, in so doing, help to contribute to the book’s success.
The book is now available for pre-order through Wanstead Bookshop. When it’s published next March the cost will be £45, but pre-ordering now will get you a £15 discount. Liverpool University Press’s publication costs are being financed through pre-orders, so ordering it now will help the success of the whole project.
