The Journey Starts and Ends at Kingswood Station, England

Surrey EnglandWe lived in Kingswood, Surrey, England for two years. Many of our journeys began with the walk down to this building, the Kingswood Train Station. When I say down, I mean it was a 10 minute downhill walk that felt like a 15 minute uphill battle on the trip home at the end of the day.  When it was raining, it became a 20 minute skin drenching, umbrella breaking endurance run.

The Kingswood Station was the third last stop on the line, so the only direction we ever went was into London. What a wonderful city it is! And how could it not be so when we started our journey from such a beautiful looking little train station!

    • Your comment makes me think of a trip we made to San Francisco where it seemed like every direction we walked was uphill. There didn’t seem to be any downhills ever!

    What a beautiful building for a train station, and the hill sounds like it was a journey all by itself. 😀

  3. I couldn’t tell it was a train building, how beautiful. 15 minutes uphill is a long walking journey.

    • It was nice to have a train station so close. England is a country that depends on trains for transportation, and has for a long time.
