Ham Common looking North

The last in this short series of photos of Ham Common is taken from where the last one left off, by the avenue of trees pointing the way to Ham House, but this time we turn our attention away from the obvious view and turn to look North instead.

Here the countryside pretence is maintained despite the main road to Richmond (here it calls itself Upper Ham Road) carrying its unfriendly cargo of cars, vans, trucks and lorries just to the right of the picture. A bright red car heading towards Kingston almost breaks the Arcadian dream but, for the moment, the trees and the grass prevail and the illusion endures.
