Paul: I think the best information is in G.E. Bentley's BLAKE RECORDS; I
seem to remember that there's a whole section in the back devoted to Blake
residences.  If it isn't in BLAKE RECORDS, its in BLAKE BOOKS (same
editor/author & both are OUPress books).  Jim Watt

Paul: In July 1977 I took a bus from London to Bognor Regis
on the south coast, and walked an easy mile or two east to the
village of Felpham, where I saw Blake's cottage from the street
(it was privately owned and one could not just go in). I also had 
a pleasant meal at a nearby pub/restaurant. I cannot now recall the 
details, but in The Oxford Illustrated Literary Guide they state, 
under the entry "Felpham": Blake's cottage is now "Blake's House, 
behind the Thatch Inn." Also: "Limmer Lane by the post office 
leads to the site of Turret House where the poet Hayley lived..."
At a Tourist Information Office in Bognor Regis I got a good 
map of Bognor Regis that included the villages of Felpham and 
A visit to Chichester is certainly worth while.
Hope this helps a bit, Izak

Felpham appears to be between Bognor Regis and Middleton-on-Sea i.e. on the
coast south-east of Chichester.  If Middleton-on-Sea isn't on your map, try
Littlehampton or Worthing but Bognor Regis is the nearest town.  You would
take the A259 from Chichester.  Once you get to England, you'll be able to get
a better map.
