Guru of the alternative lifestyle, Nicholas Saunders was primarily responsible for the development of Neal's Yard in London.Nicholas spent much of the 70's writing alternative guide books, culminating in one for England and Wales. He later spent some time at a large community in Denmark from where he would often travel back to England to buy nuts and beans at considerably cheaper prices.

Throughout his life, his astute business sense and natural charisma ensured the success of just about every project he initiated. The innovative and original businesses set up by him are still thriving and mostly comprise what is now a delightful Bohemian corner of Covent Garden.He had embarked on many trips researching links between drugs and spirituality and it was during one such expedition to South Africa that he was killed, age 60, in a car accident.
