Literary London – Day 3

24 September 2014

Region: London

Continuing our literary season, today Bleeding London is looking for 20th century authors.

There’s a useful wiki-list here of 20th century writers and there are plenty of streets named after these authors, so we’d like to see them in the Bleeding London portfolio.

Obviously, our favourite author is Geoff Nicholson, but most of the Geoff related streets have already been uploaded.  However, we are still missing Geoffrey Gardens in E6, Geoffrey Road in SE4 and Nicholson Street in SE1 and so we are offering double bonus points for any of these.*  Another of our favourite authors is Daphne du Maurier so there are bonus points on offer for anything Daphne related – double bonus points for Maurier Close in UB5, Daphne Gardens in E4 and Danvers Road in N8,  (BPCC 2409)

*@ Britta, Cheryl, David, Julian and Keith – you’ll be awarded retrospective bonus points for your earlier Geoff Nicholson related contributions.

We’re still looking for post-people for some of the postcode areas. If you can help co-ordinate the streets that have been covered and arrange some coverage of your area, please drop us a line at
