This Saturday, 18 May 2013, come on our latest easy going ride when we will be looking at what remains of the Medieval and Tudor architecture of South London travelling from Croydon to Cheam.
Despite the passage of time many buildings still remain dating from this period when Croydon was a significant market town and home to the Archbishop of Canterbury at Croydon Palace, one of whom, John Whitgift, set up a foundation to provide charitable care for residents. The buildings constructed by the Whitgift Foundation such as the almshouses (pictured) will be amongst those we visit on this ride along with Croydon Minster, All Saints Church in Carshalton and Whitehall in Cheam.
We will be stopping for lunch at the Little Windsor Pub, Sutton (alternatively bring your own lunch) before finishing off at West Sutton Station.
We hope to be at the station in time to catch the 3:31 train home calling at Streatham, Tulse Hill, Herne Hill and Loughborough Junction/ alternatively you can cycle the eight or so miles back from Sutton to Lambeth.
Join us on this easy going ride – meet 10:15am at East Croydon station on George Street. Contact Anthony Gilmour on 0795 1572330 if you have any queries.
