And Crystal Palace.....?
Croydon has not progressed to the heady heights of triangles
I don't think there's a Tesco there...
The what now?
It's like the Bermuda triangle except your belongings disappear instead of you
To be fair, part of the triangle is in Croydon. It’s where the Boroughs meet.
I'm not having it. There are no triangles in Croydon. FACT!
There is the gym opposite Waitrose or even closer the one on the end of cherry orchard road right by the station. They don't look that appealing though.
There s a meeting of almost triangles at the junction of Whitehorse Road, Windmill Road, Northcote Road- where there's a Halfords a Tesco TKMaxx and the shell garage (and buses 450 468 75 157 ) AND there's a massive police holding cell block in Windmill Road. We've got it all in Croydon. Oh, and there's a religious soup kitchen on that triangle too
^can you tell I spend a lot of time at that windswept bus stop?
Left out the lowly 50 bus, Sorry
It's a pedestrians nightmare up there. Not the sort of triangle estate agents create.
It's an urban adventure triangle*
Not like the manicured, neutered triangle up the hill in Palace
*Yes, you take your life in your hands crossing the road there
You think the CP triangle is "manicured"?
It's a patch of land where the rail line splits outside East Croydon
What the hell? I thought they were just finishing with the development.
This would surely mean years of disruption. Just sorting that tram bridge up the road in addiscombe has been going on forever.
How come it used to be 12 minutes to Victoria and six to Clapham on some trains when I first moved here and now it's 12 and 20?
They put slack in the time tables to avoid delay repay and improve performance stats.
In theory sorting out the triangle will help with journey times as it is a bottle neck for sure.
That says 'selhurst triangle' so they don't even think it's a real thing
I'm ignoring this because I live near one point of it. It's a three sided oblong
I used to work near one of the "points" of it.
I think it's changed a lot since I frequented the area. The pubs have gone (The Gloucester and the Fish(ermans Arms)), the scrappy's gone and so has my office.
You could pull the Croydon triangle further back to take on sydenham road and use northcote road as an extension to windmill road. Would that make it more interesting? Actually probably not.
That traffic island in Thornton Heath by big Tesco on Parchmore Rd is a triangle of sorts. It's also got some historic stones along its North side:

Oh yeah, I forgot, my daugher and I were trying to "collect" all the stones. Without looking up to see where they were of course.
I think Ive only done four, but can only for sure remember the location of two.
I meant East side, of course. Internal compass needs recalibration.

Saw this in town today.
Is there a market for this sort of thing in Croydon?
Arcadia Maid-cafe & Heart of Gaming & Playnations valentines day
I can't quite picture what it is going to look like.
Which bit of it are you questioning? There are a lot of gamers who I would imagine have cross interests with this.
I know heart of gaming/playnation hold regular card based game tournaments and events.
I think the maid cafe element is probably to draw more people in for the charity event?!?!
So Arcadia isn't a cafe, it's just some people going along to that retro gaming place?
Maybe as a one off event for card players it might be something? I have seen a few places in Croydon that seem to do those tournament D&D type things.
So it's more of a charity gimmick, one off thing right?
. . . and white day is in March.
Hmm well now I'm just confused. I dunno, I assume it's a one off
Also . . . I hate maid cafes. I would be curious as to how Croydon would translate the business model.
Seems at least quite forward thinking for Croydon, though the original concept is so awful I can't shake the idea that this would be even more irritating.
Given that everywhere you turn, shops are closing down and staying closed, this is a disappointment but hardly a surprise
Westfield’s £1.4bn Croydon development 'under review'
Thank fuck. Croydon dodged a white elephant.
