On Saturday we went to Ladbroke Grove and walked around the impressive Trellick Tower - a grade II listed building designed by Erno Goldfinger. Goldfinger?s own modern house at 2 Willow Road in Hampstead is now a museum. Legend has it that his neighbour Ian Fleming did not like either Goldfinger or his modern taste. Fleming took his revenge by naming the chief villain in his book "Goldfinger" after him.
