  • Sit in the cafes in Church Road or the High Street and you're bound to hook up with a foreign domestic helper (Filipina or Thai), a bored rich housewife or one of the girls from private schools in Putney or Hammersmith!! Smashing girls or what?
  • The park near Lowther school! Haha...
  • Outside the shop on the Windermere Court Estate seems to be the place for the young gentlemen from the Council estate to foregather.
  • Seats round the pond by the Sun Inn.
  • Hi, I am a member of the Till Dawn Organization ( A world-wide community dedicted to furthering the music of Marc Bolan. So Hook-up spot? Look no further than The Tree on Queen's Ride where Marc Bolan Died in 1977. Strange place for us to meeet? Not really - it is the place where his soul departed his body and the Till Dawn organization want the area to be a fitting tribute. In 1997 a monument was unvieled by Marc's son and then last year bulbs were planted around the tree and Memorial which are in flower as I type (for pix - let me know and I can send you some, should you wish it). For pix got here:- It is our intention to further devlop and tidy the site and we are preparing plans to forward to the council. We are also fund raising as we will not expect the local council etc to pay. We are happy to pay, happy to do it - happy to help - all we ask is the permission to improve the area. So it really is a special hook-up spot. It attracts visitors from all over the world. I was there on Sunday (21st March) and there was a very recent note from people from Japan and New York! So the site - is important. It deserves to be tidied and improved and it deserves to be protected. Keep a little Marc in your heart Fee Warner (Final Year PhD research student student - Univeristy College Worcester)
  • Has to be the Sun Inn - gorgeous on a summer evening Barnes Green is beautiful, but watch out for those Canadian geese - very aggressive if you have bread!
