Wed 3 Sept 1941: enjoyed cycling around
Cheam Hill, Worcester Park, 1905. Card sent to Fred's sister
Rather warm; some warm sunshine; lovely. To butchers and Eyles our new grocers in morning. Cycled to Worcester Park in afternoon.to Pontifex's but found them gone out. Continued ride around the new delightful district of Stoneleigh, thence to Ewell, through the square at Epsom and then home via Epsom Common, really Old Malden, Worcester Park. Ewell is a very interesting old town with many picturesque buildings and quaint roads and narrow turnings. I enjoyed the ride very much.
