Hawthorne Dene

Hawthorne Dene is currently a listed building with the English Heritage.

History:

The Regents Canal Company sold the site to James Frost in 1818.

Frost built the house Hawthorne Dene (1826) as a demonstration of the flexibility of various materials which were new at that time, with cast iron ceilings and banisters as well as concrete; and the house is considered to be unique.

It was listed in 1962 after a campaign led by the comedian Spike Milligan.
