Beverley Nichols was an author, playwright, journalist, composer, and public speaker. In 1932 he began to live with the actor Cyril Butcher, and their relationship lasted 53 years, until Nichols's death; Nichols's pleas for sexual tolerance were unusually vocal for the period, and are found throughout his writings. Nichols is now best remembered for his gardening books, the first of which, Down the Garden Path, was illustrated — as were its two sequels — by Rex Whistler. This bestseller was the first of his trilogy about Allways, his Tudor thatched cottage in Glatton, Cambridgeshire. A book about Nichols' city garden near Hampstead Heath in London, Green Grows the City, published in 1939, was another big best seller. A trilogy written between 1951 and 1956 documents Nichols's travails renovating Merry Hall (Meadowstream), a Georgian manor house in Agates Lane, Ashtead, Surrey, where Nichols lived with Butcher from 1946 to 1956. Nichols's final trilogy is referred to as The Sudbrook Trilogy (1963–1968) and concerns his late 18th century attached cottage at Ham, (near Richmond), Surrey.
Together from 1930 to 1983: 53 years.
