showing the Anchor pub and the church beyond. The Anchor was a favourite destination for a cycle outing from London from the 1870s. Unlike most such establishments, the Dibble sisters, Annie and Harriet, positively welcomed cyclists and it wasn't unusual to see two or three hundred bikes piled up outside. On Whit Sunday 1894 it is said that 20,000 cyclists passed through Kingston on their way to Ripley! In the Anchor there is a book containing signatures of famous cyclists who passed through, including H G Wells. There is a memorial window to the Dibble sisters in the church, subscribed to by the cycling fraternity.
