    History
    Motspur Park, also known locally as West Barnes is a suburb in south-west London in the boroughs of Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and London Borough of Merton. It owes its identity to the railway station of the same name, which has six trains an hour to London’s Waterloo, and to the adjacent parade of small shops. Two prominent gas holders, which are used to store the consumer gas supply for south west London stand just south of the shopping parade and can be seen from a wide area.

    The Explore
    Visited with @slayaaaa, the sunset was great and we took a few beers up with us; quality explore.
    So the largest gas holder has caved in and made a kind of lake, it smells a bit gassy but its cool none-the-less.

    I didn't mate, it was light and there was football training in the park, it was very busy.
    I highly recommend taking a trip there though, great location to chill out with a beer!
