This afternoon I took a healthy walk around my local area. First of all a brisk stroll through Charlton Park where I saw a girls football (soccer) team taking practice and about a half dozen squirrels.

Here are some of the dozen or so squirrels - just after they chased each other up the tree!
Charlton House - 400 years and counting
St Luke's Church, Charlton
Although there has been a church in Charlton since the 11th Century this church dates from only the 17th Century. Apparently there is only one bell left now since the bells were removed in the WW2 and only one made it back... the same is true (sadly) for the stained glass windows.
Here's another famous part of Charlton, the football Club.
And, nearly the last famous part - the level crossing.
Just down from where I live I Marion Wilson Park - famous in history as a lair for highwaymen. Now famous for the collection of animals that inhabit the various enclosures.
