Description: This is the former home of Baron Ted Willis (1914-1992) - a British playwright, novelist, screenwriter and ardent supporter of the Labour Party.

Born in Tottenham, Willis was elected Chairman of the Labour League of Youth as their candidate of the left in 1937, and 4 years later became Secretary General of the Young Communist League.
