AN UXBRIDGE INN, AND THE CHURCH AT GERRARD'S CROSS: MARBLE ARCH AND SHEPHERD'S BUSH

AN UXBRIDGE INN, AND THE CHURCH AT GERRARD'S CROSS: MARBLE ARCH AND SHEPHERD'S BUSH

Passing through Uxbridge, one crosses the river Colne, on whose banks stands the curiously named but wholly delightful Swan and Bottle inn (top right), embowered in magnificent old trees. Then the road, after some two miles of level, mounts gently to Gerrard's Cross common, where stands the church shown in the photograph (bottom right), a somewhat strange example of the ecclesiastical architecture of 1850. Everybody knows London's Marble Arch (top left), the starting point of this and many another great road route out of the Metropolis. The photograph of Shepherd's Bush (bottom left) shows where the road forks, our way being that to the right en route for Acton and Baling. That to the left leads to Kew and Richmond.
