I m just leaving too
I'm in the garden
I'm too cold and am in the quiet bit of the pub!!
I'll come and find you!
I didn't even look in the garden. I'll keep this table and wait to see if anyone comes here.
I am also in the railway telegraph where are you two?

That was lovely. Welcome to Thornton Heath/Croydon, Miss-Shelf! Lovely to see you again Callie.
The pub is great. Unspoilt locals' type pub but really friendly.
We should go there again!
was it busy?
Yes it was. Good mix of locals plus dogs
Lively but had quiet space and a garden
The sort if place that could handle a big urban contingent and find it amusing
Oh and toilets were nice friendofdorothy
Callie good to meet and thanks to Guineveretoo for organising at short notice plus plumber tips
The pub is bigger than I had realised. Big enough that we all sat in different parts of it, and wouldn't have found the others without mobile phones!
And yes, it was busy.
good to know. Look forward to visiting another time.
I'm pretty sure the Railway used to have strippers. I take it they've done some, er, modernising since then...
Or they had a night off
Drove past the Lord Napier with my dad this evening. He told me he used to drink there and that it was a good music venue back in the day.
Thomas Farley windows boarded up - its a shame it has a very handsome front
I hope this isn't an excuse to rip out the interior to make it unusable.
spoke to the chap who was doing the boards - asked him what was going to happen to it. He said that it was "being redecorated and the boards are to protect the windows", and he didn't know anything else. Guess we'll have to wait and see. The hardest part with the high street is working out whether it is on the up or further declining. I quite like it as it is but it's easy to see it struggle in the future (but hopefully not). that wacking great Tescos that sells everything from clothes to garden stuff to kids toys doesn't help - what chance does a high street have with that there?
it's a listed building - does anyone know the implications of that on development? i couldn't really work it out from my brief look at uncle google.
antic tried to view thomas farley pub, but couldn't find the seller of the damn place.
agent, i should say.
I think it's only locally listed - which offers it a little bit of protection. High Definition will know.
I need to register with a doctor in thornton heath - any recommendations?
hi misshelf - Thornton Heath Health Centre, we use. no problems so far, like it.
London teachers and parents!
Mujaahid Wilson, 20, was stabbed to death outside a pizza shop in Thornton Heath on 14 March 2016.
Police and paramedics were called to reports of an assault on the High Street at around 8.30pm.
Mr Wilson, from Croydon, was pronounced dead at the scene and at postmortem the cause of death was established as a single stab wound to the heart.
Detectives said Mr Wilson was attacked after he got out of a Fiat Punto and approached one man in a group of nine or ten outside Mamma's Pizza.
A fight developed and spilled into the road and ended with the victim being stabbed. The suspect, described as black, aged around 18-25 and wearing dark clothing and a face mask, ran off into Gilsland Road.
On 7 June 2016 a 17 year-old man was charged with murder. He is due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on 5 December 2016.
Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4205 or if you wish to remain anonymous Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Nice to see BigMoaner and Miss-Shelf today. Thanks for your help. Another day of painting tomorrow at Grangewood Park.
Check out this property for sale on Zoopla!
Didn't know there was a 2.5 million pound house on my street. Probably cheap for what it is. The views are amazing on the hill too.
The photos are all a bit odd - the perspective doesn't look right in them. I don't know whether that is an estate agent thing to make rooms look bigger or something, but it all looks a bit peculiar.
