Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Above the Underground update

As my regular readers will know, a few years ago I set myself the challenge of visiting every one of the 270 underground stations in London to photograph and research places of interest in the vicinity of the stations. I have been doing this now for almost five years and have only just completed four out of the eleven lines and visited 104 stations.  I keep saying I need to speed things up and this year have set a target of two per month.  I have just completed the Circle Line which was overflowing with places of interest.

Read about Hammersmith, the last station on the Circle Line here:here


  1. It was an amazing undertaking. But don't give up yet. I'm seeing parts of London I'll never get to see.

  2. The link says I can’t go there! Is there another way i can access?

    1. I have changed the link and this seems to work:
      Thanks for letting me know.

  3. You are compiling a wonderful history here.

  4. That's already 5 years you started ??? It seems to me you started a year ago !

  5. It's definitely a huge undertaking but I don't think it matters how long it takes or if you even complete it. You enjoying doing it is what matters.

  6. That is quite a goal! I admire you for doing it. On one of my last visits to London I had a goal of going all the way to the end of one of the lines and I ended up choosing Amersham on the Metropolitan line. I spent a wonderful afternoon wandering the quiet streets of Amersham before returning to London. I even did a bit of shopping in a gift shop on the High Street. I have great memories of that adventure.
