THE OTHER KEMPTON PARK
Park Racecourse, Sunbury-on-Thames, London
then there's Kempten
In the middle of one of our
most lovely recreation areas in Bavaria, the Allgaeu, you will find the
town Kempten. It is an over 2000 years old center of that region. It is
situated on the Iller River in the heart of the Allgäuer Alps.
Kempton in Pennsylvania
Learn about the traditions
of the Pennsylvania Dutch through the folklife museum, one-room school,
and log house at the Folk Culture Center. Take a ride on the Wanamaker,
Kempton & Southern Railroad and have a picnic afterwards. Bird
watchers flock to nearby Hawk Mountain Sanctuary to watch for migrating
eagles and hawks from late summer to late fall.
about the other Aston Manor?
a municipal and parliamentary borough of Warwickshire, England,
adjoining Birmingham on the north-east. There are extensive
manufactures, including those of motors and cycles with their
accessories, also papermills, breweries, etc., and the population is
largely industrial. Aston Hall, erected by Sir Thomas Holte in
1618-1635, is an admirable architectural example of its period, built of
red brick. It stands in a large park, the whole property being acquired
by the corporation of Birmingham in 1864, when the mansion became a
museum and art gallery. It contains the panelling of a room from the
house of Edmund Hector, which formerly stood in Old Square, Birmingham,
where Dr Samuel Johnson was a frequent visitor. Aston Lower Grounds,
adjoining the park, contains an assembly hall, and the playing field of
the Aston Villa Football Club, where the more important games are
witnessed by many thousands of spectators.
Croydon south of London
The town of Croydon is situated 10 miles south of London at one of the heads of the River Wandle. Just to the south is a significant gap in the North Downs which acts as a route focus for transport from London to the south coast. The old London to Brighton road, the A23, passed through the town as does the main line from London to Brighton. Today the A23 follows a route to the west of the town known as the Purley Way. Croydon is the largest office and retail centre in south-east England outside central London.
The name of Croydon derives originally from the Anglo-Saxon croeas deanas, meaning "the valley of the crocuses", indicating that, like Saffron Walden in Essex, it was a centre for the collection of saffron.
Another opinion holds that the name derives from the Old French croie dune, meaning chalk hill. This was because Croydon stands at the northern edge of the chalky hills called the North Downs.
The other Terenure
Terenure (Tír an Iúir in Irish: 'Land of the Yew Trees') is a residential suburb of Dublin, Ireland. It is located south of Harold's Cross and north of Rathfarnham. Although it is in the Dublin 6W postal district, Terenure has a reputation as an upper-class suburb, and is strongly associated with the rugby-playing school, Terenure College, but the village has always had a bohemian side too, with many actors and writers (including Austin Clarke and Máirtín Ó Direáin) having lived there; with Rathgar and the area around Portobello in Dublin 8 it has also traditionally been the home of many of Dublin's relatively sparse Jewish population. Terenure is a suburb of Dublin city proper, and its southern boundary is also part of the administrative boundary between Dublin City Council and South Dublin County Council. In times gone by Terenure Cross was a terminus for the city trams, and is mentioned as such in Ulysses (Episode 7, Aeolus), but it has been bypassed by the redevelopment of modern trams in Dublin (the Luas lines). The Roman Catholic parish church in Terenure has spectacular stained glass by Harry Clarke.
