ST. STEPHEN’S, ROCHESTER ROW

Where do you go to shop for a recycled pipe organ seeking a new home, when yours has become unrestorable within budget? Edinburgh, of course! Where do you store it for a year whilst funds are raised to complete the swap? Why, on the Isle of Wight, naturally.

is offering a series of free admission coffee concerts on Saturdays from 12.00 - 12.40 pm. The series starts on September 15th with the new Organ Scholar of St. Paul’s Cathedral, formerly at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and includes the organists of St. Matthew’s Westminster, St. Mary’s Bourne Street, St. Stephen’s, and others. Each concert will last 40 minutes and be cast in a “salon” format, with coffee available and a conversational approach to programming rather than in sit-andlisten rigidity. The December concert is on the 2nd Saturday – the remainder are on the 3rd of the month.

The lovely instrument built by famous organ builder J J Binns in 1903 as a flagship to attract further orders in Scotland has been installed in St.Stephen’s in Rochester Row, as its original home in St. Thomas’s, Leith, Edinburgh, was closing. This gives St. Stephen’s a new springboard for action as an outreach church in teaching, concert-giving and facilitating local choral societies as a venue, by having a versatile, beautiful and reliable instrument to use. For the church Services, weddings and memorials, this gives a welcome lift to the sound of all the music and will secure the future for a long time.

ST GEORGE'S SQUARE GARDENS

St George's Square is a long narrow garden that lies between Grosvenor Road and Lupus Street. At the north end is the Church of St Saviour built in 1864 to the designs of Thomas Cundy the Younger. The gardens themselves were designed by Thomas Cubitt who issued keys to the first residents around the square in 1854. The garden won it's first Green Flag in 2008. Its facilities include a formal garden with lawns, flower beds and shrubs, Ornamental fountain and dog exercise area Westminster City Council is looking to make improvements to St George's Square and has commissioned environmental charity Groundwork to carry out consultation with local residents to identify opinions on proposed ideas.

Many people in the vicinity contributed generously to the appeal, which together with grants and fund-raising by the church has met the cost. To have restored the previous Hill organ would have been twice as expensive. Its good pipes have gone into stock for other restorations. The Romantic organ decorated to a design by the church Architect, Daniel Benson, sits opposite the Burne-Jones window and the highly ornamented chapel, a mini-church within the big, bright, light space of the medievalist design with many coded features. The work was executed by Andrew Cooper organ builders of Isle of Wight, specialists in restoration and reinstallation, and the pipes were recently featured on the cover of Choir and Organ magazine.

Ebury Square, the garden of which is open to the public, was built about 1820. The farm on that spot, which in 1676 came to the Grosvenor family, was a farm of 430 acres in Queen Elizabeth's time, and is mentioned as early as 1307, when Edward I. gave John de Benstede permission to fortify it. The British poet, Lord Alfred Tennyson stayed at No. 42 Ebury Street in 1847. His work included "The Charge of the Light Brigade" He was appointed poet laureate of England in 1850. 2

Pimlico & Belgravia Eye October 2012


In these recessionary times many people are experiencing the effect of ever rising costs. One firm to benefit from this is Uptown Reservations. For the past 24 years Uptown has been accommodating visitors to London in private homes in the central areas, roughly Zone 1 on the Underground system. It’s a good time to offer Bed and Breakfast accommodation. Besides tax advantages, the 2012 Olympics games will produce a huge surge in demand for accommodation in the centre of town. And it is to be hoped that the site will continue to attract visitor long after the games have finished. Recent additions to Uptown’s property portfolio have included an apartment in Warwick Square, Pimlico and Ebury Street; Smith Street, Chelsea. Do you have a spare room with bathroom, and enjoy meeting interesting people, then find out more by calling Monica Barrington at Uptown Reservations on 020 7937 2001. AUGUSTUS HENRY LANE-FOX was born at Bramham cum Oglethorpe, Wetherby, Yorkshire on 14th April, 1827. Educated at the Royal Military College Sandhurst and commissioned into the Grenadier Guards, Lane-Fox had a long and successful military career, primarily as a staff officer; he served in the Crimea as a lieutenant. He retired in 1882 as a Lieutenant-General. Two years before retirement, Lane-Fox inherited the estates of a cousin: Henry PittRivers, 6th Baron Rivers and consequently the remainder of the Richard Rigby fortune. He thereafter adopted the surname Pitt Rivers in honour of his benefactor. Three notable descendants of Augustus are his grandson, the anthropologist and eugenicist, George PittRivers, his great-grandson, the anthropologist and ethnographer, Julian A. Pitt-Rivers, and his great-great-grandson, William Fox-Pitt, the equestrian. Another grandson was Michael Pitt-Rivers who gained notoriety in Britain in the 1950s when he was put on trial charged with buggery.

OUT AND ABOUT FREE TICKETS SCHEME

offers complimentary tickets to Westminster residents aged 65 or above, to attend cultural events such as concerts, exhibitions, film and theatre shows.

Out and About is a scheme run by the Arts & Culture service, offering complimentary tickets to cultural events, exclusively for Westminster residents aged 65 and over. It is based entirely on voluntary donations from arts organisations in Westminster, and so for most events, the number of tickets and the choice of seating is limited. Out and About and participating venues aim to make events as enjoyable as possible, please do not approach venues directly for tickets, or make other demands of staff You will have to organize your own transport, but information about access, with maps and directions will be sent with confirmation of your tickets

Pitt Rivers' interests in archaeology and ethnology began in the 1850s, during postings overseas, and he became a noted scientist while he was still a serving military officer. He was elected to the Ethnological Society of London, the Society of Antiquaries of London and the Anthropological Society of London. He amassed ethnographic collections numbering tens of thousands of items from all over the world. Influenced by the writings of Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer, he arranged them typologically and chronologically. This style of arrangement, designed to highlight the evolutionary trends in human artefacts, was a revolutionary innovation in museum design. Pitt Rivers' ethnological collections today form the basis of the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford. The estates that Pitt Rivers inherited in 1880 contained a wealth of archaeological material from the Roman and Saxon periods. His approach to excavation was highly methodical, and he is widely regarded as the first scientific archaeologist to work in Britain. He insisted that all artefacts be collected and catalogued which differed from past archaeological practice.

From 1882 Pitt Rivers served as Britain's first Inspector of Ancient Monuments: a post created by anthropologist and parliamentarian John Lubbock who was married to Pitt Rivers' daughter, Alice. Charged with cataloguing archaeological sites and protecting them from destruction, he worked with his customary methodical zeal but was hampered by the limitations of the law, which gave him little real power over the landowners on whose property the sites stood. He died on 4th May 1900 aged 73. Blue plaque 4 Grovenor Gardens
