Croydon Walk – we found the Restaurant Quarter Joan had mentioned to us.

Croydon Walk – Ruskin House. Apparently he lived in Croydon for many years, we are not sure if this is his house.
CroydonWalkStAndrews
Croydon Walk – St Andrews, unfortunately there is no way of getting a good view of this nice old church because of its location.
CroydonWalkTree
Croydon Walk – the yards were often very messy and the houses in need of maintenance, but this tree gave a cheery aspect to this particular house.

  1. Well done… all very wonderfully green and English…pity you aren’t just down the road.. or in the next country even…so I can pop over!!
    A coolish spring day here…all green as well…off to heritageperth soon to hear about the first chaplain in Perth and here a concert at the Town Hall about the important characters in Perth…go well E x

    1. I think you would have enjoyed our pub lunch with jazz today. I was trying to think if there was anything like this in Vic Park, but I think the music at our pubs is all rock bands and the main clientele would not be people upwards from 70.

      So, yes, a pity it isn’t closer.
