Forty Winks

I have been feeling guilty about the number of things which I have left out of my book/guide to East London whose publication is increasingly imminent (available from late April in all good bookshops, but most especially John Sandoe).  One of the things I did not include is Forty Winks, our local b&b, in a run of houses on the Mile End Road, acquired from Charringtons for £25,000 and much restored by the Spitalfields Trust.   They are part of Stepney Green Conservation Area, which I hope the book will encourage Tower Hamlets to value, rather than allow a Travelodge to be built bang next door to Malplaquet House:-
