Kenneth Grahame

Though born in Edinburgh, Kenneth Grahame (1859–32) moved, along with his siblings, to Cookham Dean, Berkshire, at the age of 5 to live with his grandmother. It is here that Grahame was introduced to the riverside and boating, no doubt providing inspiration for the evocative setting of the bedtime stories that he later told his son Alastair and which led to his famous novel, Wind in the Willows (1908).
