Christopher Wade, the eminent local historian who was one of the great champions of Hampstead and one of the "magnificent seven" who saved Burgh House, died on 24th August. He was 95 years old.
Christopher used to hold lively Wednesday morning sessions at Burgh House when residents and would-be house buyers could come and ask about any aspect of Hampstead history, its houses and streets.
Christopher was one of the priceless treasures of Hampstead. He not only played a vital part in saving this magnificent house, but also started the museum and went on to mentor the professional curators who followed him in that post.
Taken from an obituary for the Ham and High by Matthew Lewin, Chairman of the Trustees of Burgh House and former editor of the Ham and High.
