Another walk in Grove Farm (26/10/2022)

Update: Originally a series of tweets with four photos each. The photos also had ALT text with more narrative. However since that troll Musk destroyed that forum, I had to escape. What follows are the raw photos. (Ed.)

A walk through Grove Farm from Sudbury Hill entrance (not listed online) to Whitton Avenue West, 26/10/2022. Grove Farm is designated by Ealing Council, which owns and maintains it, officially as a "Special Nature Reserve". Ref:,_Ealing

About London's bluecoat schools and statues

A fascinating history and photo gallery about the many London bluecoat schools, the first of which was Christchurch Hospital, setup in the City of London by Henry VI in 1552.

A walk in Grove Farm local nature reserve

I got some nice pictures in Grove Farm, an official local nature reserve today. I'm usually too cowardly to walk there on my own. I don't want to get mugged. But you know, life is for living and and all that bally rot. Shared foxy earlier. One might do for a poem, perhaps. Did you see the fox? Ever feel like you're being watched?

Horsenden Lane Farm Festival sign

"Horsenden Lane Farm Festival Event Open 1st October As Usual" road sign on a suburban footpath near the junction of Ennismore Avenue and Horsenden Lane North.

Our strapline used to be "yesterday's news tomorrow", so in keeping with that: how did it go? 

Other straplines of the past: the perplexing "tomorrow's news yesterday"; the JLP-style but oddly off-putting "never knowingly scooped"; "since 1894" - there was a newspaper with the same name about then; the unlikely hilarious "pray for the repose of the soul of Colin Di Limonade" etc. etc.
