Lea Stone

I’m Lea Stone, Learning Resources Assistant and part of the dedicated library team for a Further and Higher Education college in Greater London. When not surrounded by books I can be found lurking in cathedrals, galleries and museums around the UK, but my home city will always be my first love. I am endlessly fascinated by the evolving story of London: it’s history, architecture, landscapes, the most atmospheric pubs (London Gin and tonic for me if you’re buying!) and smaller museums. The medieval and Eighteenth-century periods are of particular interest, also Art Deco buildings. I’m a lifelong fan of West Ham United FC to add to the drama.
