Hunter Davies, prolific author, ubiquitous journalist and biographer of the Beatles, has lived a few shorts steps from Hampstead Heath for more than 60 years, walking there almost every day. His latest book is a homage to its 800 acres, the largest area of common land in London: from Kenwood House to the Vale of Health, from Parliament Hill to the ladies’ bathing pond. He spent a year interviewing other Heath-lovers, researching its history, rambling and reminiscing. The resulting book, says Ferdinand Mount, is a ‘little masterpiece’.
