The life and work of Sir John Betjeman

Sir JohnWhen John Betjeman’s Collected Poems came out in 1958 they made publishing history and have since sold over two and a quarter million copies. 

But Betjeman was not only a poet. Through his broadcasting and journalism he opened people’s eyes to the value of the buildings and landscape around them and became Britain’s grand champion of its heritage. 

2006 was his Centenary, and we continue to celebrate his legacy to us.
