    As anyone who has ever made the mistake of taking the tube to Heathrow knows, there are vast, mysterious wastelands of West London as yet untouched by civilisation.

    I once went to Wimbledon by tube. Must have been around 1978. My friend Malcolm and I decided to go to Plough Lane to watch Wimbledon, because they'd recently beaten West Ham in a cup game and that struck us as amusing. It took fúcking hours to get there and then the game was postponed. We went to his Auntie's house nearby and she gave us tea and cake.

    Good. Fúcking. Timez.

    Some of the passengers on those trains look untouched by civilisation, tbh

    Working at Osterley was a pretty scary experience - particularly when you finished after midnight on a Sunday

    I have walked from Acton Town to Heathrow via all the stations to explore these exotic wastelands. The tube journey now seems tame by comparison.

    Sky?

    Some triffic Art Deco on the Golden Mile though. One day I will write a piece on the Seven Wonders of Brentford. Who knew eh?

    I used to think that but know most of it now. You might like leafy Chiswick. Though one cannot get a pwopah breakfast there until you literally cross the border into Hammersmith. West Hammersmith is quite plush too tbf.

    It's fúcking embarrassing.
    A problem I sometimes have is when wandering around somewhere central with a book in hand pointing out some hidden historical curiosity or significant architectural detail, and someone 'helpfully' asks me if I'm lost or near directions.
