    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    A friend who lives there told me there was 24! No idea if she is right.

    Clearly there'll be a massive St David's Day theme to tie in with the day.

    Not really Herne Hill, but I can't find a Dulwich thread.

    We finally got around to going to the re-opened Dog in Dulwich (Crown and Greyhound)
    The bar bit wasn't too changed, though half the garden at the back has now gone. New toilets were very clean. It was sunday daytime, so it was completely over-run with posh families with small noisy children who run wild.

    and the ale was all about £5.10 a pint. Ouch.

    Herne Hill Road, one side of the road is Herne Hill, the other side Camberwell. One end is near Loughborough Junction, the other end Denmark Hill. It's confusing enough already but I've now seen Estate Agent talk of 'renowned Ruskin Village'. Te he.

    This is wrong.

    The lower end of HHR is in Loughborough Junction, on both sides. The middle and upper end is in Herne Hill, on both sides.

    Loughborough Junction turns into Herne Hill somwehere around where the Cambria pub is.

    Camberwell doesn't start until at least a couple of streets to the east of HHR.

    There's to be no more foolish ideas on this subject, thanks.

    What's wrong exactly?

    No, no, no, no. The lower end of HHR is LJ on both sides. And yes, the middle and upper is HH on both sides. LJ turns magically to HH underneath the railway bridge on HHR, just after the HH (wrongly named) surgery. Exactly halfway under the railway bridge. And under the railway bridge on Cambria Road.

    You're obviously far too new in these parts.

    Estate agents have been calling the houses by Ruskin Park, 'Ruskin Village' for the last few years. But as any fewl knows, this is SE5, so it's Camberwell. But woe betide of you put Camberwell on your postal address as your letters will never get delivered by the postie, as that bit of Camberwell isn't recognised as Camberwell.

    We like to be geographically vague in these parts.

    I thought LJAG put a lot of effort some years ago into defining Loughborough Junction as an area bounded by seven bridges.
    This part of a BCC News ("Building Communities in Coldharbour") email from September 2014:
    Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG) are holding a party to launch the first bridge in The 7 Bridges Project, celebrating the artworks which have been fixed to the bridge by 32 artists, and the overall improvements that are happening in Loughborough Junction.

    So...it is your contention that Manuel's boxing gym, and the cinema, and the Hardess industrial estate, and Lambeth Pest Control Department are all in Herne Hill?

    The surgery is not wrongly named, as it is named HHR, not HH, surgery.

    Post code for Whirled is SE24.

    And so is HHR medical practice on the other side of the bridge.

    The postcodes in this part of the world are weird. Don't rely on them to define the geography.

    Well it all needs to begin and end somewhere.
    Seems simple enough, it's an old fashioned Parish boundary.
