This is a walk that you can do at your leisure. You just need to download the map, or pick it up from the William Morris Society Museum in Hammersmith, open Thursday and Saturday, 2.00 – 5.00pm.
Start at Hammersmith Bridge and make your way along the river to Hammersmith Terrace, reading about some of the interesting Victorians as you go.
The riverside at Hammersmith was an important hub for the Arts & Crafts movement, home to several of its leading lights. Arts & Crafts Hammersmith launched the Arts & Crafts trail along the River Thames in June 2019 so you can follow in the footsteps of poet, novelist, designer and socialist William Morris and his great friend Emery Walker, the founder of the Doves Press.
There are nine places of interest along the route, taking in the house of Phoebe Stabler, ceramicist and sculptor, Edward Johnston, calligrapher, Eric Gill, sculptor and engraver and Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson, book-binder and co-founder of the Doves Press, as well as those of Morris and Walker and of course the Dove pub. Pick up the beautifully produced leaflet, which includes a map, at either The William Morris Society Museum or Emery Walker’s House, or download it here.
