The Beatles on a London rooftop
The Beatles’ rooftop concert took place on the rooftop of the Apple Corps building in London. It was their final public performance as a band and was unannounced, attracting a crowd of onlookers. The concert lasted for 42 minutes and included nine songs. The concert is remembered as a seminal moment in the history of rock music and remains one of the most famous rock performances of all time.

The Bombing of Nant Street WW2
My uncle with his young son and baby daughter were killed in the bombing of Nant Street in WW2. His wife had gone to be with her mother whilst the bombing of the area was taking place, and so survived. Cannot imagine how she felt when she returned to see her home flattened and to be told of the death of her husband and children.

Malcolm Davey at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square
My former partner, actor Malcolm Davey, lived at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square, for many years until his death. He was a wonderful human being and an even better friend. A somewhat underrated actor, but loved by many, including myself. I miss you terribly, Malcolm. Here’s to you and to History, our favourite subject.

Epsom

Epsom in Surrey lies 22 kilometres south of central London.

Epsom was first recorded as Ebesham in the 10th century with its name probably deriving from that of a Saxon landowner. The street pattern is thought to have become established in the Middle Ages.

Like many other nearby settlements, Epsom is located on the spring line - where the permeable chalk of the North Downs meets impermeable London Clay.

By the early 18th century, the spring on Epsom Common was believed to have healing qualities. The mineral waters were found to be rich in magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts). Charles II was among those who regularly took the waters. The popularity of the spa declined rapidly in the 1720s.

Organised horse racing on Epsom Downs has taken place since the early 17th century. The popularity of Epsom grew as The Oaks and The Derby were established in the late 18th centruy. The first grandstand at the racecourse was constructed in 1829.

The opening of the railway station in 1847, along with the breakup of the Epsom Court estate, stimulated the development of the town.

Today Epsom station is an important railway junction, where lines to London Victoria and London Waterloo diverge.
