|Old Father Thames.
This is the scene from Putney Bridge – also well known for the starting point of the Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race.
|The old church by the river – walked past many a time on the way somewhere for drinks at the river’s edge.|
|Putney High Street.
Not much has changed to be honest. The shops are the same, apart from a HUGE H&M (don’t tell Mary). The buses are all modern now, with the old ‘jump on the back’ ones being de-commissioned sadly.
A walk up Putney Hill out of the high street brings you nearly to Wimbledon – our home for many years. Manorfields.
|Here we are.
Yep that’s ours – the one on the second floor to the left of the door.
Being in Putney it is exactly on the landing path for Heathrow Airport – every minute of so a plane will come overhead, yes literally ever minute or so. I’ll be on one of them soon, just going the other way is all.
Now because I walked I entered the cemetery from the top this time. Something never done before, so I was able to see these beautiful gardens, fountains, trees, walkways, sort of avenue like. Beautiful.
I got to see my Ni. Just a brief hello.
