"Croydon airport was the main London airport in the 1920s and 1930s. Many famous events can be traced back to its involvement including Amy Johnson taking off from there on her flight to Australia and Charles Lindbergh landing in the Spirit of St Louis."

No longer in use, Croydon Airport was once a major international airport that now houses a visitor centre.

Mitcham Common is a beautiful area to explore and one that I love taking the dog to when the weather's nice.
