The Cure Pilgrim Route
« on: August 10, 2018, 21:10:34 »
I have compiled a list of places of interest for Cure fans based on Lol's book "Cured". I will add a description later (when necessary) about the relevance of such places. To my knowledge, the ones crossed do not longer exist.

Note: this list is continuously updated! if there's a place that for historical reasons you think is missing on this list please leave a comment.

Link to share the map below with anyone: http://bit.ly/TheCurePlaces



Cities/Towns

  • Horley (the town where Lol was born)
  • Blackpool (the town where Robert was born)
  • Crawley (the town where The Cure started)

Schools

Lol/Robert/Michael attended the following:

  • Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School
  • Notre Dame Roman Catholic School
  • St Wilfrid's Roman Catholic (Voluntary Aided) School
  • Crawley Technical Collegue

Pubs/Venues

  • The Rocket (Crawley)
  • Cambridge (Horley)
  • Felbridge Pub (Crawley)
  • The Grey Fox Pub (Crawley)
  • Lamb & Flag pub in London (where Chris Parry first met Robert)

Other

  • Hevers Avenue in Horley: At a bus stop in this avenue, Robert and Lol met for the first time ever to go to school.
  • High Street in Horley: This is where the boys used to hang out a lot during his teenage years
  • Horley Methodist Church

I am pretty certain I saw an article back in the day about "Cure places" in/around London... probably it was in the official "Cure news" mag (which I'd received from around '96-2000) or maybe it can be found online too. I'll let you know if/when I find anything...
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

Why not? ;) We should definitely organize a field trip to those places some time! There's lot of history in those places...

I have embedded a map in the first post...the list is not final so if I am missing something (which I probably am!) please leave a comment and let me know. I have added also Beachy Head which you can see in the Just Like Heaven video... ;)

Well, I found the old article, it's about places the band used for shooting videos!

"The Caterpillar" - video shoot location:
Palm House, Kew Gardens, Kew, Surrey.
https://www.kew.org/

"The Hanging Garden" - video shoot location:
York House, Richmond Road, Twickenham, Surrey.
(Gardens open to the public, can be accessed via Sion Road.)

"Charlotte Sometimes" - video shoot location:
Virginia Water Estate, Stroude Road, Virginia Water, Surrey

One more mention in that old article was Beachy Head ("Close to me" & JLH video shoot), but you got that already!  :)

When I find the time, I will look in other books (e.g. "10 Imaginary Years") for places to be added.  :cool

seriously considering this...renting a bus or somehow arranging the whole thing (most of the places are very close, so I don't think transport will be an issue). we should plan this carefully, maybe for next year we can end the trip in a Cure show!
