Earlsfield Please support me!  

Hi,my name is Clare and amongst other things, I try to fund raise as much as possible for Cancer Research, having, I am sure, like many of you, lost many dear friends and relatives to this deadly disease. But I don't run, jog or do sponsored activities. In collaboration with my 82 year old father who is a talented artist, I have a very unique watercolour print entitled Walks On Wandsworth Common which is for sale at 55, proceeds going to the above. For those of you living in Earlsfield,. you may have already seen it hanging in the Common Ground Cafe, the County Arms or at the art exhibition at St Mary Magdalene. It is not only a unique view of a much loved area, but has also been bought as Xmas and birthday presents! If you are interested and would like more information or to view it, please do get in touch. It is for SUCH a good cause! my number is 07957 550380

Earlsfield Cheap gym in or near Earlsfield?  

I'm finding it impossible to locate a cheaper gym (20-30/month membership) in or around Earlsfield, Tooting, Clapham, Wandsworth area. Just a simple gym with free weights and machines. No pool, no personal trainers, no classes, or anything like that. Does anyone know of such a place??

Try Christophers, Plough Lane. Next to Wimbledon Dog Track.
It's also a Squash Club but you don't have to play.
It has a good Gym with free weights and machines. Gym only membership is pretty cheap.

Earlsfield Discovering Earlsfield?  

I have just come across this site and noticed a posting from someone who has just moved to Earlsfield and is overwhelmed with what the area has to offer; I am very pleased for that person. I now live in Cardiff (also a great City), and the Earlsfield I grew up in during the 1970's and 80's had literally 'everything' and was quite a suburban 'paradise' with a fantastic community.
Unfortunately it has now changed, but may I suggest to anyone living in Earlsfield to go to the library (I guess it is still in Magdalen Road??) and have a look at the records and archives; it just may surprise you.
Thanks.

Earlsfield Age of 51, Beechfield Road  

I'm researching my late great grandfather's life. He lived at 51, Beechfield Road, Upper Tooting from at least 1925 until his death in 1942. I'd really like to know when the house was built - was he the first owner? I'd be grateful for any thoughts please.  Mail-me

Earlsfield Earlsfield Osteopath  

I live in Earlsfield and use a practice at 21 Replingham Road, Southfields which is about 15 minutes walk from me. It was recommended to me by my GP about five years ago. Since then I've been back on a number of occasions with different complaints and am quite satisfied with the treatment. They have a website: southfieldsosteopaths. (I'm not sure if this system allows me to post the full URL but I daresay you know where to add the dotcom.)

Best wishes.

When I lived in Earlsfield there was a piece of land we used to call the Wandgas that we played on, is it all built on now?

Earlsfield The Wandgas  

When I moved to my present address in 1988 a neighbour referred to a nearby derelict site as the Gas Board Recreation Centre. The club house had fallen into disrepair and was set alight at one point, probably by youngsters up to mischief. Eventually, the site was sold. Part of it was absorbed into King George's Park and part was built on. The new estate is called Arragon Road, a mixture of flats and houses. I think they're Housing Association property. Arragon Road is off Bodmin Street, which in turn is off Merton Road.

I hope this helps.

Earlsfield Need your bike fixed?  

Who remembers the so called 'Cycle Engineers' called ALGURN in Garratt Lane?
It was run by some weird guy and the place was an absolute tip, with bits of old bike everywhere. There was hardly any space to walk in the shop, as it resembled a breakers yard for bikes. How they made a living beats me!!!

Earlsfield Algurns  

Algurns was next to St. Andrews Church and its sole proprietor was permanently dressed in an oily grey warehouse-type coat. The place looked a mess but he knew where everything was and although being a rather sullen character he was friendly and helpful underneath. I often went in there as a kid for the odd bolt or nut and he never charged me.

Earlsfield Algurns cycle engineers  

It may amuse to know that I recently acquired an Algurn bike frame. It came from the fellow who had originally commissioned its manufacture: he gave me its specification sheet from them, dated Jan 1950. He had raced and toured on it for years afterwards, as had his son subsequently, and then, rather unusually, stuck it in his shed to collect dust. It was from there that it was retrieved last weekend, and presented to me, and I have built it up and use it everyday to go to work. It is a lovely frame, a road-track affair, with fancy hand-cut lugs, not as ornate as Hetchins or Gillotts, but simpler, with distinctive long tangs on the head tube. Im now its second owner, the first having had it from 1950 to 2014.

Earlsfield Algurns bike frame makers 1951  

In 1951 I ordered my lightweight bike frame from Algurns, in Garratt Lane. The shop had steps down into the cellar where the frames were made and my frame had super hand filed lugs, Reynolds 531 tubing and the angle of the saddle stem was constructed to my height and specifications. Being just 15 with a delivery job after school, the frame was purchased by paying 5 shillings a week and when I collected the frame one of the two brothers offered to drive me home up Penwith Road to Southfields, no doubt to confirm the address I had given on the purchase terms.

Interested in your cycle "..... My son purchased an Algurn in the 1970's. He is currently having the frame refurbished as he is 50 this year.

I cannot find much out about Algurn .. I was told that he was an Italian and that his name was in fact Algurney.

I would like pictures of your bike if possible ... And would willingly send pictures of my sons cycle.

In 1951 the Carshalton Unity Wheelers based at Rose Hill mainly had their bicycle frames made by Higgins based at South Norwood but after one guy called Reg Skinner had a frame made by Algurney's many more followed.....still have photos of Reg riding his Algurn up the Salt Box, Kent in the club Hill Climb event.......great frames..........H Loydds have just introduced their decals..............riding over to that fantastic shop must bring back good memories to any club cyclist who experienced it at that time

Earlsfield Algurn Cycles  

 Mail-me  Bill Gray, who built a few frames for Algurn referred to the proprietor as Alan Gurney. I was passing the shop in 1966 on the day after my 18th birthday and there was a very old racing bike for sale, which I bought for 5. This was a wood wheeled lightweight of about 1907 built by Hezekiah Bowra of 17 Clerkenwell Green London. I still have this treasured machine. I stupidly failed to ask how they obtained this old racing bicycle.
