    I was at Thames 1985 to 1988 :thumbs:

    Eltham's OK. I've not felt unsafe in and around Eltham high Street since I transitoned, though there are parts of Eltham I wouldn't enter. Years ago just stopping and looking at the Stephen Lawrence memorial would bring you drive-by abuse but I think its better now. I still get randomly beeped by drivers round there though.

    It's fairly typical suburbia tbh - not much goes on but if you like parks and woodland its ideal; Kent proper and central London are both really easy to get to by train.

    ETA just realised how old this thread is :facepalm:

    Eltham's a fucking khazi. The most unwelcoming part of London I've ever experienced, with a palpable sense of menace in the boozers.

    Not condoning mobs like this bit know what side I'd be on if rioters tried to smash up my town.

    'Eltham hasn't been touched by riots ... we're doing the job of the police'

    What a shame they were not around "doing the job of the police" in Eltham on the night of 22 April 1993.

    "A shameful veil of silence that has obstructed investigations into Stephen’s murder from the very start still shrouds the truth.

    To this day, anyone asking questions on the streets of Eltham where the gang’s families still live is met with instant hostility. Knight’s mother shamelessly told us: ‘Nobody here will talk to you.’

    Friends and relatives of the five men hide behind closed doors, refusing to speak. Letters and phone messages have gone unanswered. Their glamorous girlfriends and ex-partners continue to keep a low profile.

    The ‘Eltham omerta’, it seems, is as powerful as ever. Potential witnesses fear they may pay a heavy price if word gets out that they have spoken to the police. The name ‘Stephen Lawrence’ is met with an uncomfortable and eerie silence in the pubs, such as the Beehive in New Eltham, where the five suspects used to drink ..."


    Source: Murderer who got away: 20 years ago today, the Mail accused five men of killing Stephen Lawrence. Two have been convicted, one's in jail on a drugs charge and a 4th is on the run. But the 5th still brazenly walks the streets where he committed his crime (click for more)

    I hated Eltham long before Stevie Lawrence was killed.

    Hate it by all means but tar everyone that lives there and every aspect of that community, including people that campaign against racism, with the same brush and it's just idiotic. Things change. Communities change. And in the case of Eltham it's a good fucking thing that it has changed because it was horrible up to 20 years ago.

    Your information seems to be a bit single track and myopic

    It's got Blackheath rugby club at Well hall now, pretty good to go there and then for a curry after the match at the Yak and Yeti - used to be the Greyhound pub.

    It's a far more mixed place than 35 years ago.
