About the Belsize Village Association
Belsize residents gather for a guided local walk
Within in the London Borough of Camden, Belsize Village is located to the south of Hampstead and north of St John’s Wood, Primrose Hill and Chalk Farm. The name of the area derives from the Belsize House estate that dates back to the 16th century.
For many years this website has been operated by Robert Follis who has now moved to Australia. Working with Angela King of Heywoods, Robert used to organise the Village lights and flowers.
David S Percy
The running and maintenance of the website is now in the hands of David Percy who lives in Belsize Village (in the house with the Mulberry tree) having grown up as a boy in Belsize Park Gardens.
Do please feel free to contact David by email or phone with any ideas, suggestions and articles.
Belsize has a fascinating history, read more about the area, its people and its architecture here at About Belsize Village. Over the years, many Belsize people have contributed to the artistic, cultural, architectural, and intellectual life of Britain.
