Is Nelson Mandela House up for sale
In a winebar not long ago:
"Bet you can't make the Standard plug Peckham."
Bottle of Bolly says I can.
This is old news isn't it?
Coming up: Peckham's continuing gentrification.
It's been the "new Dalston" for some time now tbf
Bolly and cheese!
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.
It's totally 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?
i thought Peckham had already been gentrified?
anyway - West Norwood is next on the list.
/please be next on the list.
It's all relative I suppose
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.
Is there a branch of Foxton's yet?
Fogbat lives in Dulwich? No wonder he's too good for us these days.
Apparently their Dulwich branch deals with Peckham. Assimilation is not yet complete!
Rye Lane used to be one of swishest shopping streets in London in the 50s (supposedly)
(jones & higgins department store)
more history of peckham here
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.
