A group of Friends of 78 Derngate recently took a walking tour of houses designed by the talented architect Alexander Ellis Anderson in the Abington area of Northampton.  Anderson did the preliminary architectural drawings for Mr Bassett-Lowke at 78 Derngate.  The walk was led by our own Anderson expert Rob Kendall.
