Wildes Farm, which began as a fifteenth-century cottage around which various parts accumulated, was given to Eton College by Henry VIII. In later years it became the home of Sir Raymond Unwin, the pioneering architect-town planner who designed with Lutyens Hampstead Garden City, which is at the right outside the photograph. Sir Nicolas Pevsner, the great architectural historian, lived in a building on the other side of the wing at which we are looking, and the famous pub, The Bull and Bush, was close by.
