I just got back from a walk with Alistair up to Severndroog Castle. With Serkan still staying at my place, it’s good to keep in touch with my other PAs. Although I’ve now lived in Greenwich for over ten years, I had never been up there before. It’s a eighteenth century folly surrounded by ancient woodland. It was restored in 2014 and now houses a coffee shop, unfortunately currently closed due to the virus. It’s a place full of history: what particularly caught my eye was the woods used to be a hideout for highwaymen, waiting to loot carriages going along nearby Shooters Hill. It’s now a quiet, peaceful place though, and it was great to just sit there for a while, in the peace of the trees overlooking the city, and talk.
