    I'm amazed that so many place names have remained the same.

    Surprised to see New Cross on there, I thought it was called Hatcham until relatively recently.

    I have just found out about the WWII Bombing of Sandhurst School in Lewisham thanks to the exellent Running Past blog. Last week was the 75th anniversary of this attack in which 38 children and 6 teachers died.

    I like Plow Garlic HIll for Telegraph HIll...I spotted a fair bit of wild garlic around in Bromley as it happens - sprouting at the moment in the pavement-side grass.
