Aickman in Gower Street

Robert Fordyce Aickman was instrumental in setting up the IWA (Inland Waterways Association) at Gower Street, WC1E 6HB.

On Aickman’s 101st birthday in 2016 a plaque was put on the wall of his London home. David Suchet (TV’s Poirot) unveiled the plaque donated by the IWA.

As well as being a waterways campaigner Aickman was a noted author who specialised in fantasy and horror, many of which are known as ‘The Strange Stories.’

Below is one of his classic quotes, others can be found here.

When you live entirely among madmen, it is difficult to know how sane you are. - Robert Aickman
