The Pavilion, Lammas Park, Culmington Road,
Ealing, London W5 5JH
St Mary’s Church in South Ealing held an Open Day on Saturday 7th October. Several club members booked a guided tour up the tower and after a steep climb up spiraling narrow steps, were stunned by the magnificent views from the top . The guide told us about the two plague pits in Ealing: one under the green central area in the road outside the New Inn (a historic coaching inn used as the last stopping point from central London westwards), the other pit was in the vicar’s back garden. We also heard about the two workhouses next to the New Inn.
In one direction we could see Wembley Arena and even Canary Wharf, in the other direction as far as Box Hill, with a view to the west of Lammas Park and the club pavilion.
