Riverside trail taking in the homes of some of the leading lights of the Arts & Crafts movement.
The riverside at Hammersmith was an important hub for the Arts & Crafts movement. Arts & Crafts Hammersmith launched the 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.
This is a walk that you can do at your leisure; just download the map to print it out and follow it.

Start at Hammersmith Bridge and make your way along the river to Hammersmith Terrace, reading about some of the interesting Victorians as you go.
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.
