Fenton House is a 17th-century merchant's house now owned by the National Trust and open to the public on specific days. It was closed when we were there hence the view through the rather impressive, ornate gates.

The church of St. John-at-Hampstead in Church Row. There was certainly a church on this site in the early 14th century which eventually became too small for the parish and this church was built in the mid. 18th century.
