Event info

RPS have postponed all meetings until at least the end of June due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We hope to be able to bring this walk to you later in the year.

Join us for a photographic walk to see and photograph some of the unique and innovative domestic architecture designed by Ernest George Trobridge in the 1920s and 1930s in the Metroland suburbs of Kingsbury, in Brent, the London Borough of Culture for 2020.

Led by Philip Grant, an expert on Trobridge, we will see many examples of Trobridge's individual and innovative designs amongst the more typical 'semis' of the area, including thatch-roofed elm houses and block of flats built as castles. We will also visit the Trobridge display in Kingsbury Library.
