De Quincey in Everton

Famed for Confessions of an English Opium Eater, De Quincey was a great writer and thinker, but he was also a chronic walker (for instance after escaping from Manchester Grammar School, he walked through Wales en route to London). He was an associate of the Lake poets (Wordsworth, Coleridge etc) and lived in the Lake District but he also spent time in a cottage in Everton.

This wonderful site charts aspects of the Everton days. ou’ll find links and articles here too to a wide range of the blogger’s interests, especially Soul. This is the blogger’s profile:
