HACKBRIDGE Reynolds Close - Culvers Avenue - Green Wrythe Lane - Middleton Road - St. Helier Avenue - Morden Hall Road - London Road,MORDEN STATION ( evenings and Sunday ) Morden Road - South Wimbledon - MERTON ABBEY Savacentre (MS except evenings)
NEW ROUTE replacing Hackbridge to Morden section of Route 293operated by London & Country at Dorking (DS)

Now, there was an open day at Morden depot on Sunday, 3rd November 1990 and I know this is the day I took this picture so it may have been borrowed in anticipation of extra traffic for the open day or Leatherhead were short of vehicles as 641 was a Beddington bus
