Lynwood House was also home to the author Arthue Machen. Born in Monmouthshire, the only child of a country clergyman he grew up in an isolated rectory. Drawn to London and writing, he wrote his first book in 1884, The Anatomy of Tobacco, a celebration of pipes and smoking. In 1890 he began working on a series of compelling supernatural tales and was hailed as a genius by American writers but never received proper critical attention in Britain.
The Great God Pan in 1894 was his first horror tale that outraged critics, but is now regarded as a classic. This was followed by The Three Imposters thriller in 1895 and Hieroglyphics in 1902. Followed by a poetic novel, The Hill of Dreams, in 1907, which was regarded as his masterpiece. The Bowmen & Other Legends of the War 1915, appeared in the London Evening News and was taken to be a true story. Followed by The Secret Glory and Far Off Things in 1922 and Things Near and Far in 1923.
In 1929 Machen and his wife moved to Amersham with children Hilary and Janet where they occupied the first floor of Lynwood (48 High Street). He eeked out a living with his pen as a reviewer and publisher's reader, writing occasional essays and introductions for new books. This is where his last tales were written; The Green Round in 1933 and Children of the Pool and Other Stories in 1936.
He died aged 84, nine months after the death of his beloved wife. They now rest in the St Mary's Church.
