The Blue Line Trail
D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) lived in Eastwood for the first 23 years of his life. But the Birthplace Museum at 8a Victoria Street was just the first of the Lawrence family’s four Eastwood homes. Lawrence’s socially ambitious mother Lydia was always looking for something bigger and better!
Follow the Blue Line Trail around Eastwood to discover the other Lawrence family homes and see some of the places that influenced his life and work.
