Obituary: Hilary Peters

Polished Corner, Hilary Peters, author of Docklandscape, dies aged 83

The environmentalist and author, Hilary Peters, has died aged 83. Hilary attended Francis Holland School before studying Theology at St Anne's College, Oxford. Hilary's interest in religions merged with a love of animals and ecology to establish one of London's first city farms in Surrey Docks. Her resulting book, Docklandscape, documents her experiences, from rearing animals in a deeply urban landscape  to producing home-made goat's cheese for city workers' lunches.
