A friend who lives there told me there was 24! No idea if she is right.
Milkwood reopening on March 1st
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.
Hey chaps, this is the Herne Hill thread take your LJ chat arguments elsewhere please.
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.
Sure, why not
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.
198 Gallery just secured funding for their building expansion...
That's good. Presume they have match funding of some sort? At their open house thing to show off the plans they mentioned works were expected to cost close to a million!
Looks like Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News may be a Herne Hill resident.
My London: Cathy Newman
I’ve seen her a couple of times in Brockwell Park.
Deliciously Ella has closed after less than a year. According to The Times, her business had lost 700 grand. Another casualty of the downturn in “casual dining”, perhaps? Or maybe a vegan deli was a bridge too far for Herne Hill?
The bakery which was destroyed in a fire has reopened though.
I've never even heard of the place, which may have been part of the problem. To lose £700k in under a year suggests they either had a whopping rent and/or were spectacularly clueless.
They opened too many places too quickly. And whilst the concept was ok the execution was pretty poor.
Has the £700k been lost between several premises then?
That's what I've understood. Would be a lot to lose in less than a year on one railway arch!
Ah, so they had ideas well above their station. It seems quite a thing for entrepreneurial types to immediately start expanding if they manage a half successful foodie start up joint. I get loads of ambitious press releases all banging on about how [insert trendy foodie start up here] will soon be taking their on trend dining concept to every other trendy part of town.
Given how expensive the food was I'm amazed they lost so much!
that and the fact she got over £220k in dividends in the first year, still with mummy being a Sainsbury and mother-in-law being Tessa Jowell I'm sure they'll recover somehow
Pretty sure she has a realitve at Penguin who pushed through the glossy/ smiley books that where based on the success of a food blog that had a following. They tried to turn that following into a bricks and mortar life style choice, but in reality, not enough people could afford to go there.
Has anyone seen the cook/ lifestyle books that kicked it all of? Go and Google the books and you'll then realise why it failed.
