In Praise Of Suburbia

I see that Worcester Park has notched up a reference in The Daily Telegraph today in an eulogy/defence of suburbia:

"The air is sunnier for couples with young children living in Longfellow Road today, with a garden to play in, a grammar school within reach and a church in walking distance. All this, 27 minutes from Waterloo or 33 minutes to bosky Boxhill. In its online satellite picture Worcester Park is like one big garden cut by asphalt drives."

I'll leave you to reader and ponder the article in full here. Suffice to say I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment - for me there is nothing better than returning from a day in the big smoke or a city break abroad to the comforting, reassuring orderliness and politeness of suburban Worcester Park.

I woudn't change it for the world. Would you?
