There is quite a lot about Hampstead Heath, especially in Chapters 17 & 18.  It was and is a mystical place to me, despite being well inside the boundaries of London.  I had an especially close relationship with it as a place in which to sleep at night and roam by day.  It was in the care of the London County Council in those days.  Under the Corporation of the City of London it has become, if possible, even more magical, because they have let it get a little wilder.  These pictures were all taken in 2003, but are listed under 1961 because that was my main Heath year.  Click on any image to view larger.
