History of Hampstead Heath and illustrated guide to what you can look out for while out on a stroll there.
Deborah Wolton is a landscape historian, who has extensively researched the history of Hampstead Heath. She is a regular volunteer with Heath Hands, most recently as a member of the team surveying the veteran trees. Sandra Lousada is famous for her theatre photographs, her photographs of children, and her iconic portraits of such luminaries as Laurence Olivier, Joan Plowright, Vanessa Redgrave, Albert Finney and Julie Christie. Her photographs have illustrated many books, including, most recently, London's Parks and Gardens, by Jill Billington, and Hampstead Heath, by Deborah Wolton and David McDowall (both Frances Lincoln). Her book Public Faces Private Places: Portraits of Artists 1956-2008 will be published in September 2009, and will be accompanied by a major exhibition at the National Theatre.
