It's the Lambton Worm of shopping trolleys. Flee!
Just discovered to my horror that two of my favourite Soho cheap eats have gone. The Berwick St Fish and Chips which did the best fish and chips in Soho and Stockpot. The fish and chip ship shop has been replaced with yet another chi-chi eatery and Stockpot has only just closed it seems
I heard yesterday that Stockpot Kings Rd has gone as well
Chartfield Avenue I'm guessing. If so, it backs on to the Ashburton and no views of river nor any common?
There are many nicer roads nearby.
Putney residents tell of 'hell' as super-rich arrive on one street
Thanks. Ah, so it is. Slum clearance? Bless
And to think the poor people of Putney have a problem. Pity the people of Hampstead! All those basements with cinema's, gym's and colonic irrigation spa's....
Fenced off: how London’s super-rich are destroying the soul of their community
you do know highgate and hampstead are two separate and indeed distinct areas?
Same difference to me
I uderstand that both area's have their plannig issues!
bit like confusing brixton and clapham, i suppose. have some problems with the internet and can't get the guardian website - could you post up the text of the story?
now have the guardian back
OK, so this place in Tooting does not have planning permission but it does have potential
Offers in region of £48,000. Sold for £208,000 and then there are the fees on top
Garage in Tooting Bec? Yours for £200,000
Luxury new flat in Acre Lane Brixton? Bit paranoid about security. Just £465,000. How about a flat with no windows?
Land & New Homes Brixton Camberwell Streatham | Beresford Residential
These Brixton flats are missing something quite important
Apparently it's a way of circumventing planning permission.
thread about it: A flat with bespoke kitchen but no windows, anyone?
Somebody somewhere (obviously quite a lot of people somewhere) must be earning the money to support this crazy casino. Banks aren't going to lend 465,000 unless there is a very good to excellent chance the money will be repaid with interest.....
who they are, where they are and what they do is something I've never properly understood.
Not for me to promote other forums, but for a feel of gentrification

Even has pages devoted to finding nannies/aupairs
Has the bubble finally burst? Perhaps, if you are an overseas investor

bastards. What about locals who cannot even afford the deposit on these places.
I was amazed to find an old school boozer near Smithfields today , The Hope , it's a proper boozer
I've never seen that pub not open!
I felt very nostalgic drinking in there
Interesting side effect of gentrification is the closure of prisons. Holloway has closed and women are now imprisoned in Surrey somewhere I gather. Holloway is being replaced with flats of course.
Pentonville looks next on the hitlist. The terrible part of this is that it becomes that much harder/expensive for friends and family to visit.
Brixton vulnerable too Id expect...
Basement ( bad things, stashes of pr0n, secrets, gloom, squatters) becomes Cellar ( Fine wines, Hobbies)
New Shed=>garden office
Paved over front garden=>private off road parking
Not to mention wormwood scrubs
Many were shipped out to Bronzefield in Ashford. This is a private prison run by Sodexco. I visited last year and as Holloway was not replaced all the women were transferred to existing prisons meaning that the system is extremely over stretched. Dangerous IMO
All of them are under threat. And should be replaced by a new nick on the same sight, but the greedy fuckers just see £'s rather than human lives and plough on making London a shithole.
The other terrible part of this is that any objection to this will probably raise little sympathy from the usual suspects (right wing trolls on sub- press-article comments, claimant bashers, etc.), probably on the grounds that if you have a criminal (sic) for a relative it's tough shit.
