Week 29 -40. The good old days



This a drinking fountain situated at Robin Hood Gate at Richmond Park. We went for a walk with our U3A Walking Group this week. I was struck about the amount of detail they had added to this drinking fountain. It reminded me of days gone by when there were such things. From Robin Hood Gate to Petersham Gate where we ended our walk was approximately 4 miles so it was a good workout. We saw deer and squirrels and birds. Cyclists, runners and walkers all use the tracks. We had a coffee on the way round so it was very civilised. Richmond Park, Wimbledon Common and the local river, the Hogsmill have provided us with interesting walks within easy bus-ride-reach from where we all live.

  2. They certainly do not put such craftsmanship into things today. Nice find, thanks for sharing


  3. I would love to see craftsmanship like that today. Sadly, that seems to be lost.


  4. This doesn’t compare to the sleek modernistic designs of today. Nice find.
