Pre Suburb - Wyldes
This photo, with Henrietta Barnett's handwritten caption beneath, shows Wyldes Farm House which, as Dame Henrietta pointed out, was planned to be the gateway to the Hampstead Heath extension. Today it is on the corner of Hampstead Way and Wildwood Road with direct access to the Heath Extension.

It is a historic property which at one point was occupied by Charles Dickens, but also Raymond Unwin the co-planner of the Suburb and a plaque remains on the house commemorating him.
