Well-rested after the weekend, my regular cycle journey back from work wasn’t quite enough for me today so I decided to go exploring. First I took a little detour off Camberwell Road and went to take a look at Addington Square, a charming, mostly untouched little Georgian square that I’d never been to before.
It’s very different from the rest of the area, seeming more like the squares in Kensington, although perhaps not quite so grand. Around the area are small signs of former glories and 19th Century life; foolish me, I didn’t have my camera to record my findings. Next time.
I cycled back to Camberwell Road, cut across the Green (plenty of small groups taking the opportunity to have a quiet can of White Lightning) and up Grove Lane to find out the latest about the Dark Horse. It seems that their patience is wearing thin, as they have a note on their board castigating British Gas for taking too long to get their pipes sorted out. They will open ‘soon’.
Then fatigue hit me and I went home, my plans of passing Denmark Hill to check out the new cafe belayed by traitorous legs.
