This route was travelled more than a year from the moment of its posting on the blog, as it was the return route from West Norwood, following the outward trip on the 2.
After both King's College Hospital and the Maudsley, we were into the Walworth Road and to Elephant and Castle, I had thought that West Norwood was down Croydon way, rather than being north of Streatham, so was impressed by the speediness of the whole thing. Of course going into London, even outside the rush hour, was slower than coming out had been, but not much.
Necropolis Railway Station (do you think the story that the platform bar had a sign that said 'spirits served here' is a myth?) Waterloo Bridge may not have Wordworth, but it does have Wendy Cope.
And so to Euston, well within the advertised 57 minutes for this time of day.
