Christopher Wade RIP

27 August 2015

 Having played a crucial role in the saving of Burgh House, Christopher and his wife Diana founded the Hampstead Museum here. Christopher’s great knowledge of Hampstead was unrivalled and we shall miss his presence in the House immensely. All of our love and thoughts go out to his family at this time. A clever, gentle, generous man the like of which we may never see again. Christopher we will all miss you. RIP
