taken 3 years ago, near to Beddington, Sutton, Great Britain

Mill Lane, Waddon
Mill Lane, Waddon
Waddon Ponds, off camera to the left, are one of the headwaters of the River Wandle. In the 18th/19th century the Wandle was perhaps the most industrially-exploited river in the country: its rapid drop to the Thames made it possible to construct mills very close together along much of its length. Waddon Ponds, I suspect, began as a millpond for a mill located just beyond the road signs.
Wandle Trail
The Wandle Trail is a 12.5-mile (20 km) walking and cycling trail that follows the River Wandle from Croydon to Wandsworth in south-west London.

A short river (9 miles) flowing entirely within southern London. It rises at Waddon Pond (Croydon) and flows north to meet the River Thames at Wandsworth.
