    If you look at the QT website, the only panellists mentioned for this week are Kezia Dugdale and Brian Souter. Kezia was on last week from Scotland and Brian is a Scottish businessman :confused:
    Greening is a Putney MP so good chance she will be on. I know little about George the poet other than that he is a Londoner, so a good chance of him being on also.

    Souter used to back the SNP. Think they are still on good terms. Dugdale is a political failure.

    Ooh, there is scaffolding around the boarded up pub at the end of Cherry Orchard Road.

    Does anyone know what’s happening to it?

    The big one at the roundabout is The Leslie Arms, I think? Been closed for decades as far as I remember. Lovely building, such a shame it's fallen into such a state. Would love to see it as a pub!

    The end with Lower Addiscombe Road. The big pub on the roundabout.

    That’s the one - couldn’t remember it’s name.

    I hope it’s not flats, but almost anything is better than a boarded up pub.

    Just after I got home from East Croydon Station I turned on the telly and they were broadcasting live from East Croydon Station because it’s a year since the tram accident.

    When I lived on lower addiscombe road it was shut as a pub but I swear it had people living upstairs. Was about 8+ years ago now though.

    Re the Glamorgan

    Glamorgan pub plan shows it is asset of community value

    It was squatted at some point but was then sold and the squatters were moved on.

    But that was years ago, and nothing seems to have happened since then.

    Great. I live around the corner and seeing this lovely old place sitting and rotting was sad. They’ve always had occupants in there which is good, so no “going on fire”. Will check it out today!

    Thinking about this area - I grew up just down the road in Addiscombe 'proper' - reminded me of the derelict milk bottling plant on Leslie Park Road that we used to explore. As a kid it was a very cool and exciting place to be in, with scant regard for our personal safety nor the inherent dangers of crumbling industrial buildings

    Anyway, just googled it and found this very interesting blog which mentions the surrounding streets and their namesakes, buildings of note (including one of my former Scout huts ) and the aforementioned pubs. Interestingly, for me, it mentions Norbury Brook which I only became aware of last year when I moved back to Croydon and now live a stone's throw from, but in the north of the borough.

    Edith's Streets: Thames Tributaries – Norbury Brook feeding the River Wandle - Addiscombe

    Anyone knows a good pub in Croydon that shows other sports rather then football (Horse Racing)? The Green Dragon maybe?

    I heard some quite bad ju ju about the Glamorgan that involved a lot of mafia style bullying and threats.

    Oh that one. I think some of it is already flats (but you can't see um).
    Someone told me it would be a school. Loads of room at the back apparently.

    Really? I quite liked the Glamorgan because it was quiet and the food was okay. I never heard any rumours about it.
     
  29. Guineveretoo

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    People have been living in it, but I didn't think it was converted into flats? I wonder if I can check it out on the council planning site....
