    Camberwell Fair is back on 20th August. It's moving to Burgess Park as it's already outgrown the Green after one year.

    I'm putting on a free show at the Old Dispensary this Friday with a very original Brooklyn band. It's free all night. Please come along!

    It's Denmark Hill. It's on a hill, and that hill is called Denmark Hill.

    The railway and Coldharbour Lane are significant in this part of London. They mark the edge of the flat area stretching down to the river. Below the railway line is flat london, above the railway is hilly London. You are above the railway, just like Herne Hill, Tulse Hill, Brixton Hill. Camberwell is the other side of the tracks in flatland.

    Camberwell isn't your closest amenities/shopping area either. East Dulwich is closer. You might want to just not mention that too much.

    I was going along with this until you said East Dulwich is my closest shopping area. It's quicker for me to walk to Morrison's than it is to Champion Hill Sainsbury's, and if you're talking East Dulwich proper it's even further away!

    Anyway, now I've lived here a month I'm leaning towards it being Camberwell, just on the basis of that's where I drink.

    You are wrong and Teuchter is right. Don't bring facts into this. The name of your neighbourhood is the name of the hill (but not Champion Hill) or perhaps your nearest station. HTH. :thumbs:

    Went to Maloko last night - really really nice, and a big meal for £6 (and BYOB with £1 a head corkage). Took a while since it was one guy doing everything, but he was great.

    Then you must be only a little bit south of the railway line, which means you aren't really on the hill, but also means you must be very close to Denmark Hill train station in which case you definitely live in Denmark Hill. You are excused from living in East Dulwich. Case closed.

    I understand it as a term of greater specificity than any used so far by drachir in defining his/her location.

    Those planning to go to Camberwell Fair in Burgess Park next weekend might like to explore Walworth first...

    Yes it was excellent to see that is now open, however I must admit the blank slide projector installation annoyed me!

    Tis one of the background sounds of the area. Expect more. They're building a helipad on the roof of Kings I think.

    The helipad was finished a while back!
     
  25. teuchter

    teuchter je suis teuchter

    The helipad is finished but not in use yet. As I understand it, they decided to carry out some other building work at the same time and they can't start using it until that's finished too. In the meantime, the helicopters continue to land in Ruskin Park in the bit just above the foootball pitch enclosures.

    Looks like Network Rail want to 'do a Peckham Rye' and develop their rail arches on Camberwell Station Road - Network Rail plans to transform Camberwell arches into cafes - Southwark News - depending on your perspective this is either good for Camberwell as it will give the area a sense of place and bring in new develoment or it will be bad as the garages will have to move elsewhere and it will make the whole place more hip and trendy and raise prices.

    I hope that it will lead to the reopening of Camberwell Station which apparently was shut to passengers in 1916.
