Coming Up Next: Peckham's Gentrification

Mation

real life adventure worth more than pieces of gold
It's not upmarket fried chicken, is it?
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).

Hardly getting over it.

The area around Peckham Rye could do with being made better. It's just a pity that any kind of redevelopment seems to require the rah set.
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). :)
 
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.
 
Oh Dear....
In The Gardens mayhaps?
Near The Herne?
Underhill Road maybe?
Other than some 5 years in Brixton, I've lived round these sides for some 25 years
I cannot express how much I loathe the would be Claphamites who find they cant afford it and export their bigotry and bordeline racism to what was a lovely place and then spout on in their simplisitic Little Englander guff - East Dulwich Forum, from I managed to get banned from in a couple of days simply explaining to the spineless little dears that they had fucked my area up, a little gem of such small minded fuckry
"When you hear them speak thus, thou shalt cut out their tongues, and thine eyes shall have no pity for them"
Go away matey, fuck off back to Surbiton

Oh yeah, lived on Howden St for 7 years, near Bell End _ Anthony Gormley had a studio there then, used to chat with him in the caff, Desmonds filmed round the corner, cast would have bevs in the Oglander. Proper place to live
Now in Bell End, I can buy an antique lace wedding dress

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
 
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.

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

lol I am a student do you really think I can pay everyone?? There will be free chocolate though! Anyone that has some spare time to contribute their thoughts and opinions about the issue for the study will help a lot

I am studying Sociology. I am in my last year :)
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'.
