7 Tues. Rather warm, some nice sunshine between the cloiuds; slight showers: very boisterous. Cycled over Mitcham Common to Beddington Lane Station. First time for many years. The Common looked very nice and the rose-bay willow herb made splashes of colour everywhere. To water the grave in evening.

Our reader 'Greyfox' writes: Beddington Lane station is now a stop on the Wimbledon to Croydon tramline, opened in 2000.
