Lambeth Cyclists architecture ride this Sunday: 30 October 2011: the Country Retreats of South London

Sunday 30 October 2011



Eagle House in Mitcham on lambethcyclists.org.uk
Eagle House, Mitcham

We'll be looking at several big houses on our journey from Streatham to Mitcham via Wimbledon; houses that were once country retreats. There's more than one might expect!

We start in Brockwell Park: the house there will be our first stop, then on to Streatham Common, Furzedown, then on to Mitcham, where we'll have a pub lunch.

After lunch, we will look at a house on the south side of Mitcham next to the Wandle, then Morden Hall and Morden Park, and then perhaps finish with a glance at a house on Merton High Street.

Meet: 10.00 am (for 10.15 am start) by Brockwell Park, Herne Hill gate (junction of Dulwich Road and Norwood Road, SE24)

    Those who wish can return by train (SW Trains or the District Line) from Wimbledon Station.

    Ride will finish about 4.00pm. Some hills, overall distance no more than about 10 miles, but at a fairly leisurely pace.

    All welcome - no need to register - make sure your bike is roadworthy!

    - Note the ride this month is on a Sunday -
