We woke up this morning in South London to snow. I always go for a run and as it was early this morning,8am and nobody else was about, I thought it would be an opportunity to take my pocket camera with me.
Here is Canon Hill, a few roads from where I live, overlooking Canon Hill Common. Canon Hill got it's name, reputedly, because it was land owned by the canons of Merton Abbey in the Middle Ages.

Later in the day we decided to walk on Wimbledon Common. There are some good slopes there for sledging down.

Some houses on the edge of Wimbledon Common. In a recent newspaper survey, the houses that abut the common are the second most expensive residences in England . Belgravia, in the heart of London next to Buckingham Palace, is the most expensive place to live with properties averaging £3.75 million. The average for Wimbledon Common is £3.65 million. The houses in the picture are the cheaper end of the scale.
A view looking across the common. This part of the common is a golf course, The Royal Wimbledon Golf Course, when it is not covered in snow.
