Church Walk

9 Church Walk was the home of Imogen Holst from 1964 until her death 20 years later, designed by H.C. Cadbury-Brown within the grounds of his Aldeburgh home, number 3. It is situated down a quiet residential street within close walking distance of Aldeburgh High Street.

In 2010 the property was given to the Britten-Pears Foundation by the Holst Foundation. We have aimed to maintain the unique spirit of place of the modest single-storey property. Imogen Holst led a frugal life and the décor and furnishings in the property are comfortable but sparse and functional.
