    Hmm. when I forst came to London, I was in there rooting about and found a sketch book owned by C Walter Hodges ( no body has heard of him I spose) and tried to buy it.The owner must have seen the look in my eyes and decided that it was not for sale at any price and took it off me. grrr

    As a kid I used to play 5-a-side football there on tuesday evenings. At the time Saxon used to host dances there at weekends as well.

    I think there's quite a lot of momentum behind trying to avoid that fate. The council would certainly make themselves very unpopular if they let it happen. There have been proposals already for mixed use, including some community use. Ladywell Village Improvement Group: Ladywell Old Baths/'Playtower' - update
    Lewisham Building Preservation Trust

    It's not clear to me what the council are offering yet - are they offering a free/discounted lease to whoever takes on the mammoth restoration costs?

    I looked at the website to see if there was explicit encouragement of some kind of community use, which I expected there would be, and there wasn't. I suspect with council cuts to face, it will be sold to the highest bidder, flats or otherwise. :(

    Also, i can highly recommend Cafe Green in Hither Green. Used to be a greasy spoon which has slowly transformed into a very good Vientnames cafe - food is great, v cheap and has BYO. Open during day and friday/saturday night.

    anyone know what's happening to that big pub, I think it's called Ravensbourne Arms. Massive building, huge pub, scaffold currently up.

    Lewisham is twinned with three areas, one of which is in Berlin
    Lewisham Council - Twin towns

    I know this as there's a sign declaring it at the horniman, which is a border of lewisham

    they're moving to the high street... Could be good

    I fear flats for the Ravensbourne though...a massive space to make work as a pub

    I really miss the Rav, was my go to pub - always a decent bunch in there. Cat ford Bridge Tavern is now open, similar sized space but lacks the Rav feel :(

    Reopening the Market Tavern? Surely the Ravensbourne will stay as a pub. :(

    EDIT: Yes the Market Tavern.

    Market Tavern, Lewisham
