What’s in a name?

Where did the name Foggy Bottom come from? It’s a bit more of a story than you might think! Adrian tells the story in the early chapters of one of his early books;

‘I first came across the name Foggy Bottom when working on a nursery in the USA in 1959 and delivering plants to a small plant centre there close to Washington DC and Langley, Virginia. The name stuck with me until we built our new home, slightly above the low meadow, which draws the mist and fog to it many times a year.’
