Lionel Britton's Home in Tufnell Park

This house, 66 Tufnell Park Road, was home to Lionel Britton for more than twenty years. A leasehold property originally belonging to his mother Irza, and where Britton lived with her, it became his on her death in the late 1950s. This was Park House, where Irza supplemented her pension and Britton eked out a meagre existence by letting out some of its rooms to lodgers. Britton lived here until his move to Margate in 1969, two years before his death.
