The upstream march continues...
Mark (me), Bill, Mary, Pete, Alan, Blanche, Andrea
We caught the train over to Kew Bridge joining the same train from Clapham Junction as Andrea & Allen. We were joined this time by a couple of A & A's friends Pete & Blanche and usual suspect Bill.
The weather was variable, mixed sunshine and showers. We passed more historic and interesting sites: Syon Park with its house and pavilion, the Old Deer Park including the original meridian (PDF) which predates the Greenwich meridian and Teddington lock where the Thames ceases to be tidal.
Lunch at La Tasca, Kingston-on-Thames
After a substantial lunch we set off again through the throngs enjoying the now sunny weather.
Feeding the swans at Kingston
We crossed the river over Kingston bridge and a pleasant stroll to our end point at Hampton Court Palace.
