Last day in London

We had a quiet final morning with just a visit to the allotments where Annie grows her veg

After lunch, Mrs Tootlepedal did some work in the front garden and I went for a walk. I discovered that you don’t need a watch in Brixton as there are many clocks about.

I walked through Brixton and took a tour round Brockwell Park. This is a fine park with a lot to offer …

… excellent views …

… and many attractions as I walked round …

…. not least a BMX track and a miniature railway (not in use today).

I took a tour of the park and walked back to Brixton by quiet back roads, enjoying the bustle of the shopping area beside the railway when I got to it.

The weed free drive showed me that Mrs Tootlepedal had been busy while I was out.

One again there were no flying birds today but at least I did see two swans a-swimming.

If all goes well with the trains, I should report from Langholm tomorrow. We have had a lovely time here.

  1. Where is the garden in the ninth photo from the bottom – boxed plants, benches, inside a lovely tall brick wall?

      1. Ignore my follow-up question – I just read Susan’s comment! I will have to add that to my list of places to go when next in London.

  2. London appears to be blessed with a lot of open parks – excellent town planning. I have enjoyed looking at the variety of scenes you have shown us in this post.

  3. Thanks for taking us on a walk through this part of Londen. The park looks very nice and the panorama’s are totaly different from what we used to see from you….. The big city is most of the time in the background.
    So this is the end of your stay in the capital, I wish you a safe trip home.

  4. To say you were a stones throw away! Next time you walk around Brockwell let me know and I can introduce Dog to ruin your walk. Glad you enjoyed the swans though. They’ve bred from the last 4 years on that pond which has been a delight. Hopefully no avian flu will reach them..

  5. I like the community garden area and the parks. Green spaces are wonderful things to see in a city. Glad you and Mrs. Tootlepedal had a good visit and are back safely.
