The famous novel is recalled in a series of streets off London Road south of the station: Friday Street, Island Road, Crusoe Road...
But Pitcairn Road? These islands weren’t discovered until almost 60 years after the author’s death - and are still best known as the refuge found by the mutineers from the ill-fated HMS Bounty.
No matter if a council official got a little carried away. Daniel Foe (he added the De himself) wasn’t beyond embellishing a good story himself. If a hack journalist ever made good, he can be proud of ‘Journal of the Plague Year’, his imaginative account of life in 1665.

LET’S RESTORE YOUR TOOTING FLOORS
How curious that a series of local streets are associated (and one also not...) - for no valid apparent reason - with Robinson Crusoe...
A desert island dweller would be glad to have timber for fuel and for building a raft. The home and office dweller must look down to appreciate that most enduring of features: the traditional wooden floor.
And what comes to the eye? A pristine, shiny surface - or one that’s a sad, marked shadow of its former glory?
