the King Stone Upon Thames

Kingston is home to the stone on which the Saxon Kings were crowned. It stands outside the Guildhall. The Church (All Saints) was serving tea, coffee and cake to my companion's relief, and had some old brass and a wall painting of St Blaize with carding comb and pastoral staff.

The museum is fairly small but has some curious exhibits telling the story of Kingston through the ages.
