    Not sure about fried in particular, but a 'proper' restaurant with a lot of chicken on the menu. Looks like a gastro pub from the outside (I haven't been in).

    Or. more accurately, the developers require the rah set, because they have the largest disposable incomes, rather than because they're decent human beings (and not at all worthy of the bastinado). :)

  5. Upmarket fried chicken haha. As long as it's crispy and hasn't been marinating in grease for an hour before placed in my paper bag I'm cool with it.
     
  6. Millionaire artists and television production sets make somewhere a proper place to live? Are you thinking of Chelsea?

    Well the artist was no millionaire then - had the decency to fuck off to somewhere expensive when the wedge did roll in - not simply buy the area and populate it with minor public school types
    Desmonds was NOT "Made in Chelsea" - try catching a few old episodes - you might like it - tho like MiC it did kinda "represent" for the area
     
  8. I totally understand the anti-gentrification movement, but sometimes I think there's a lot of nostalgia and yearning for "the good old days". All of inner London is unaffordable and only the well off can afford to buy anywhere mildly close to zone 2.

    But what do I know, I'm only 22.

    Urban has turned into the local neighbourhood watch meeting. All twitching curtains and moaning about her at number 43 getting above herself.

    Personally I blame the East London line
    It has enable the direct linking of Islington and Clapham, spawning this vile ribbon development along its course

    I thought it was all about her at number 43 getting on top of someone else?

    Have you decided on an angle to take with your dissertation - effects of gentrification on the local communities; on the built environment; on Peckham's "employment opportunities" for example - or are you going to try for a broad sweep?

    I apologise for my fellow posters, but there is sadly a bit of a tradition of people having a go at those asking for info like this on these boards.

    It's not good, and thankfully those doing it often get called on it, but there it is. I only lived in Peckahm for a couple of years otherwise I'd email you myself.

    Good luck with the dissertation. :)

    Its on the impact of gentrification, to see if it is a positive or negative thing for Peckham by interviewing those who grew up in peckham and those who have recently moved into the area. I am also observing the different areas in Peckham eg. Peckham high street and Bellenden road to see the differences. I am hoping to find different opinions and thoughts on the topic and to see what effect it has had on people

    You're going to have great fun with your results, as you should get a wide spread of opinions between "old-timers" and "incomers". Integrating your ethnographic element shouldn't be too difficult either, as your subject matter is tightly defined enough that it'll be difficult to go "off piste" in terms of letting your personal experience colour your observations.
    I'm not a Peckhamite myself, but I worked there in the late '80s for a couple of years, and liked the area. Then again, I grew up in similar areas, so I've never found them intimidating in the way that I'm aware some more recent arrivals have.

    But how do you define 'Peckham'? The ones who've lived there for ages will get priced out and everyone who's moving in will think gentrification is great, doesn't mean it's good for 'Peckham'.
