‘Time Travel’ – Great Chertsey Road, Twickenham

Pedalling west into the early autumn afternoon sun. A journey along part of a cycleway. ‘Lost’ under layers of subsequent surfacing. A geological survey that would reveal 1937. Tarmac, concrete, avenues of trees and telegraph poles…and a sense of (open) space. Before the infilling (backfilling) of the metropolis and its hinterland.
