has that new posh pub closed down? I can't remember what it's called... Something House?
I went past yesterday and lights were off.
on the site of the old Hatton Arms? Was that it's name
my memory is poor
Dolls' House, or something, if you mean the Clayton Arms? I think it'd changed back to the original pub last I looked.
This chap? Google Maps
Yes Dolls House...I thought thats what it was called but sounded too stupid in my head...back to Clayton Arms then...worryingly shut yesterday
It is definitely a stupid name for a bar.
Appears that some cyclist got done by a left turning lorry at the Peckham rd/ Lidl junction at Burger king. No idea of state of rider but bike trashed. Lots of trucks in and out of the old highshore school site this week as clearing begins in earnest- maybe be careful in that area if you are cycling, at very least for the shit that will litter that section of road with the trucks.

The DIY Art Market and the Independent Ceramics Market are back at Copeland Park and the Bussey Building this weekend.
This weekend in Peckham: DIY Art Market and Independent Ceramics Market, 27th-28th May
Meant to put this in here.
The development at 38-44 Rye Lane (corner of highshore), where they want to put 28 flats in (now 27, what a concession!) and double the height of the building to six stories is back out for consultation. Grateful if other locals could object, it'll be a fucking eyesore and set an awful precedent in terms of height. There's no social housing/affordable in it either, as far as I can tell.
Any illustrations of the proposed development?
Annoyingly, the planbuild section of southwark's site is slow running/not working just after I clicked that. (Hopefully it's being swamped by objections), I'll dig the elevations out at lunch, think I have them on my laptop from looking at them last week...
Happily realised that it is, in fact, lunchtime. 8)
You'll notice there's no in-situ renderings of it, as would normally be the case. Wonder why that is?
Southwark planning site is well flaky - I usually have to try a couple of browsers to get through. The project sounds appalling though
Looks like the Clayton Arms has become this - Prince of Peckham, hadn't seen in mentioned in here before.
