Night time at Barnes Pond - # 09/152

The title speaks for itself.  The mediaeval riverside community of Barnes has a pond and an ancient church, many centuries old (and much re-built after ravages of fire and age).  The pond is surrounded by elegant late 19th century villas and the Sun Inn (a great "Bar Fly" venue) looks out towards the water.

Barnes now part of the Borough of Richmond and can be counted as part of London's great "Suburbia".  Is it nice in Barnes?  Again, let the photo speak.


  1. I can confirm: it is nice in Barnes!

  2. A lovely image and making the place look so inviting, which it is. I remember going quite often to Barnes to have dinner. Can't for the life of me remember the name of the restaurant tho.

  3. @Rob & Mandy..........tks for the endorsement!

    @Jilly.........Yes, J! I can see you fitting in here, nicely. Little has changed (I suspect)and your Menton blog style would find a good deal of content, were you here now.

  4. I like this shot.

  5. Hi Stuart! I’m back home and happy to come here!! WOW! This one is spectacular!!! Suburbia at its best!!!

    Meanwhile Blogtrotter is showing you an old castle village in Lycia. Enjoy and have a great week!

  6. Lovely night shot. Makes me want to crash the party, or maybe you did??
