Sir Clement the Great



Sir Clement the Great

Home to an all-round great human being and funny man

Location: Boundary Road, St John's Wood, W9

Description: Sir Clement Freud, who died on April 15 2009 aged 84, experienced the fullest and most public of lives as a gourmet, gambler, restaurateur, nightclub owner, lover of cricket, petanque and the turf, humorist, broadcaster and for 14 years a Liberal MP.

For four decades he was also a witty and well-loved participant on the radio panel show 'Just a Minute'.

Most men with such varied interests could be said to have enjoyed them, but Freud, having ruthlessly marketed himself as a celebrity, was unable to conquer a dyspeptic nature. This manifested itself in a lugubrious manner which made him less popular with those who knew him - even in that most tolerant of clubs, the House of Commons - than with those who heard him on the radio.

And so to this very address - for many years Freud lived in a house in Boundary Road, St John's Wood, which he bought from BR to turn into a 'dream home' with designer Jon Bannenberg.

But can you tell Shady which number?

Dear Shady, St Johns Wood postcode is NW8. W9 is a completely different area altogether, its Maida Vale. (Anonymous)
