Sunday 17th May 2015: Meet 12 midday in Newington Green, London N1.
Bring your own bits of history."
Dating from 1658, 52-55 Newington Green houses are extremely rare survivals of pre-Restoration and pre-Great Fire town houses, and as such are one of the most remarkable groups of seventeenth-century buildings in London.
Grade 1 listed, Hackney Council's asset register lists them as "the oldest terraced houses still surviving in England".
During the decade or so prior to the American Revolution, the terrace was something of a hotbed of dissent as the resident of number 54, dissident preacher Dr Richard Price was visited by many of the American founding fathers including Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams.
