Whenever I had a chance, I made my bare bones notations in a small diary. It was handy already having all of the notes written in chronological order, but writing in a structured, composed manner is still currently well beyond my ken. Day One – 31/03/15. A limit-breaking taxi ride to Heathrow’s Terminal 3 brushed by me in my exhausted state. Blasted Louis Theroux with his compelling, well-balanced documentaries about the mentally ill inmates of psychiatric hospitals in America. I hadn’t got to sleep until 3am in my effort to catch up with all the episodes, and my wake up call came at the dreadful hour of 6 in the morning, giving me barely enough REM for a small furry mammal, let alone a twenty year old in the prime of... Since travelling to and from Prague I’ve learned that Mr. Theroux still resides in Harlesden, North West London, and he takes breakfast with his family frequently in the small cafe inside Roundwood park, a place full of memories and less a ten... My mother wasted no times at Duty Free: free Jamesons, samples of replica Ernest Shackleton era-Mackinlay’s malt whiskey, then Bloody Mary’s with breakfast. Obviously not, that’s well behind us,.
This blog records notes about London (and Greater London) streets - what the buildings are, what the background is. These pages have been compiled over many years and from many sources - its not intended to copy from other people's work. Each post represents a square on the Ordnance Survey grid -and the vast majority of information is culled from map based source material - Ordnance Survey, A/Z, etc. On some inner city squares only a quarter of each square is done because of the volume of material involved. Please add your comments and corrections - I am sure there are lots of mistakes - and my idea is to build up a correct record interactively. In 1939 it was rebuilt as The Wardona and operated by Wardona Cinemas Ltd. This was an Art Deco style building designed by Thomas Braddock, including a fin sign outside with cinema’s name in neon. Church Road. The road was once a footpath, running parallel to Stanhope Road and thus linking Galley Hill with Swanscombe Village. It was once known as Bird’s Row, and by 1881 Barnfield Road. It was Church Road by 1888. to the east of Craylands lane. This pit lay between the London Road and the main line railway. These belonged to the J. B. White Cement Works which lay to the north of the London Road and were accessed via tunnels under the road.
As we headed outside, Lance remarked that high winds were expected. The wind here commands respect. I went back to my room to add a fleece under my down jacket. We looked at some sculptures along the promenade. Then we got to a really big sculpture. Each side had a different design, incorporating matrices of windows, some smoked, some partially reflective. a series of small lounge-platforms ascended one side of the building along a bold flight of steps with a transparent balustrade. I bought a latte at one of them (they don’t foam the milk here). it was all modern art, and most of it was pretentious and annoying. We had a nice snack of rice pudding and tea at The Bistro in Old Town. We went to Marmot Sports to try to return sunglasses she’d bought after losing hers, before finding hers again. They would only give store credit. and she couldn’t find anything else she wanted at that price. At our lodging, it was time to address the problem of the skis. I’d found that it would be possible to check them to Stockholm and London, store them at Heathrow for two weeks and check them to Seattle. for 20-year-old skis and boots with worn-out bindings, it wasn’t worth it. I’d sounded out some companions on the possibility of having them take the skis home for me. They rolled their eyes.
