    In a winebar not long ago:

    "Bet you can't make the Standard plug Peckham."

    Bottle of Bolly says I can.

    "Done!"

    I used to live in Peckham. It was a much, much nicer place to live than any of the places I lived around Brixton. People were nice to each other in the street and everything.

    The was a marked increase of wankiness creeping in, though. As the Monkeygrinder says.

    Lol sez who?

    When I moved to London I was 'the rest of the country' and living on Dog Kennel Hill and going north past the Nag's Head lol but since then I am only aware of the 'poncey part of Peckham' fogbat and Bellend Road with the buttplugs and already enormously gentrified adjacent boozers.

    That's basically Dulwich. Not exactly Peckham.

    Google Maps does in fact bestow that name on the area. How's that for a compromise, fogbat? You don't have to associate with the plums in Dulwich proper, but you're still denied your Peckham sreet cred?

    Exactly, this is old news although now there's renewed interest because it's much easier to get to with the new overground route from Dalston.

    Was in the car park last weekend for the drone day, spectacular views listening to Elaine Radigue & James Tenney, who'd have thought.

    Apparently their Dulwich branch deals with Peckham. Assimilation is not yet complete!

    Next on the list - South Norwood, Catford & Penge.

    I remember when Clapham was a place down towards the end of the Northern line and you would only live in Balham if you were a bit skint/just moved to London.
