The Temple in Wanstead Park was opened for a special event on 7th October. The popular local author Geraldine Roberts gave a talk about her book:'The Angel and the Cad''. This tells the sad story of Catherine Tylney and her horrible but handsome husband William; it was he who was responsible for the demise of Wanstead House. The book shows how Catherine, so often painted as a wimpish female, fought in the High Court for custody of her children. And won, thus changing family law in this country forever.
We look forward to the Temple being open to the public again soon so we can enjoy more such events in this special building
