A.A. Milne, author and playwright, 1882-1956, born in Henley House, which stood on this site.

His grand-daughter Clare was present at the unveiling, which was done by two local children.

Site: A. A. Milne - NW6 (1 memorial)

NW6, Mortimer Pace, Remsted House

The building was Henley House School, a small public school run by his father with just 13 pupils.  In 1889 H. G. Wells was the science teacher for one year.  Milne sold the school in 1893.  Now the site is occupied by Remsted House, part of the Mortimer Estate.
