Another Trip to Peckham, Southwark, London - 28th October 2012

It's off to London on another trip to see Abbie in Peckham and, on this occasion, Isobel's sisters who are visiting from Dublin. We stay in the same pub-with-rooms as before - the Victoria Inn - on Bell-end[-en] Road, just round the corner from Abbie's pad.
