This was such a wonderful visit and so much more interesting than I had expected. The house itself is positioned close to the river and I can imagine much more pleasant than it was in the time of Emery Walker. The river did not smell as it would have done – quite the opposite – and whilst we were there the sun did shine for a while. All the factories have long since gone and it is now a very desirable residential area.
