Kingston upon Thames

Here’s an impression of the most charming town of Kingston upon Thames, located in the southwest corner of Greater London, which it has been a part of since 1965. Kingston, as it is often simply known, is an ancient market town, which used to be the place where Saxon kings were crowned, like Æthelstan and Æthelred in the tenth century, when Kingston was on the border between the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia.

This photo shows Market Place and the Old Town Hall with the Guilded Statue of Queen Anne. The background also features All Saints Church, which can be traced back to Anglo-Saxon times as well, although the construction of the current church began in 1120.

I added an additional photo to the WS. It includes the Shrubsole Memorial, which was erected in 1882, in the foreground. The photo was taken at the end of a beautiful October day.
