Prince of Wales, Merton, London   1 comment

I took the Tube to Morden, one of the southernmost extremes, Thursday to do a bit of a run across Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park.  Starting off in the industrial and, as I found it, bleak area just north of the station I could understand why some refer to the area as Mordor.

But, these are environs I am used to and that I think of as a proper urban landscape and soon I spotted my first pub of the day, The Prince of Wales.

This is a great little boozer and will be even more so once the beer garden work is finished (the construction site looks extensive).  I had a Doom Bar — well kept, I should add — and listened to Christmas music while the BBC showed me tragic details of the evacuees from Aleppo on the silent tele.  A group was drinking heavily and playing the other fruit machine; I think it was family in town visiting the guy sitting at the bar advising on strategy.

Soon, I returned to trail which skirted the nearby park (cricket grounds and the like).  It was a gorgeous day out.
