Ever since the Wandle passed under a train line in Merton, it's changed. Less playful, less happy. The river has been hiding away from the Wandle Trail. Keeping its distance.

I'd rather been hoping some knight in shining armour would turn up and change the King's Head from being a boarded up mess, to being a really nice pub again. Stranger things have happened. But it was not to be.
Since 2002 the September Cask Beer Week has been celebrated in London by giant pint pots running around and causing mayhem - all in the name of getting you to have a pint.
It was back in July that the Kings Head in Colliers Wood closed down - just days after change of use planning permission was given. It's now boarded up and wire fences surround the place
The Red Lion wins another award, I lament about the lack of London Pride round here and Young's beer gives me headaches. Still that's the way the cookie crumbles.
Colliers Wood's historic Kings Head pub closed on Saturday - its mostly preserved and unique 1930s interior to suffer the indignity of becoming offices for the bus company.
But then maybe it's the fact that the place looks like it hasn't been refurbished since the 1970s doesn't help. It's the only Young's pub I've seen that still has the company logo that was abandoned some point in the 1980s.
