One of Teddington’s more spectacular riverside properties (on Broom Water) enjoying the unusually hot sun we experienced in May that is forecast to return by this weekend.
In this photo series, Peter heaps praise on his local all-purpose convenience shop (Gunters on Stanley Road) – “open from 5.45am to 9pm every day of the week. As you’d expect, here you can buy everything from cereals to cigarettes, water to wine. You want a newspaper, stamps, a sandwich, a bottle of wine, a top-up on your Oyster card? Here’s the place. It’s cheerful, friendly, and always there when you need it. Shops like this, where they know you by name, are worth their weight in gold – and are a thousand times more welcoming, human, interesting and full of character than any supermarket on the planet.
Taken near the Half-Moon plantation (near the model boating lake – Heron Pond), a route taken regularly by this photographer on the pleasant commute to work.
