    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!

    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. :)

    I'm pretty sure the Railway used to have strippers. I take it they've done some, er, modernising since then...

    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.

    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.

    I think it's only locally listed - which offers it a little bit of protection. High Definition will know. :)

    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.

    Wow!

    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.
