Contrary to popular belief, London's Waterloo Station is not named after the battle. It is actually named after Waterloo Bridge, which WAS named after the battle.

Or was it something to do with ABBA winning Eurovision in 1974..............?

However, also contrary to popular belief there is no evidence to suggest the name of Edinburgh Waverley Station has any connection with Waverley Abbey in Farnham. It was named after a series of novels by Sir Walter Scott, which again have no evidence of being named after Waverley Abbey.

However Waverley Borough Council probably were.....

So much trivia and yet so little time! :lol:

It’s so expensive and I just feel it’s lining the pockets of the already super rich primadonnas and decided enough is enough.
The extra money and time i’m saving gives me more time with the family and garden and gives me more money to plough into Aldershot games both home and more away.
