    I think it's probably a wide angle lense and a lot of tweaking. I didn't think any of the very big houses on the street were still left as one property.

    Oddly, this one has got two kitchens, so maybe it was two flats? Or maybe it was just a granny flat?

    Go and see it :)

    On 21 December 2016, 18 year-old Ashley Newman of Castland Street, Leatherhead, was found not guilty of the murder of Mujaahid Wilson following trial at the Old Bailey.

    Newman, who was wearing a black hooded puffer jacket and had a scarf across his face at the time of the incident, accepted inflicting the fatal blow, but insisted he did not mean to kill or seriously injure Wilson.

    He denied murder and manslaughter and was cleared of both charges.

    They were caught on the CCTV outside Mama's Pizza's on Thornton Heath High Street squaring up to each other, before Wilson threw the first punch, the jury was told.

    Although he missed, the two boys started grappling and Newman took a knife from his waistband and stabbed Wilson once to the chest.

    The stab wound pierced Wilson's heart and he died a few minutes later.

    A small black blade, believed to belong to Wilson, was found at the scene, the court heard.

    Newman claimed he did not realise he had stabbed Wilson until Wilson started to run away towards the pizza shop while clutching his chest.

    Will be watching with interest. You got a source for that? I've asked them for an update on the Norbury Mews site but heard nothing back.

    Apparently, a new independent coffee shop has opened in Thornton Heath and is worth checking out. Coffee Loft | Facebook

    That's my ends, sort of. Still a 20min walk though.

    Mate sent me a link to a local paper feature on this place last week. Haven't had the time to go and check it out yet. Will try to this weekend and report back.

    Although its coffee is probably baked in the bones of orphans, i tend to use the Costa for my coffee fix :(

    hearing stuff about the little place by the station opening up - that would be a great unit for a indy cafe.

    Which unit is that Big Moaner?

    I adopted Dinners Delight cafe as "my caff" when I was looking around here before I moved. They gave me credit the other day when I'd forgotten my purse so I am in:thumbs:

    I don't drink coffee so don't have the same need for a good coffee

    What is Blue and Orange coffee like?

    it's very nice, sells Turkish food. Had some great dishes there.

    However, never, ever go near their pizza. I don't know what they do to it, but what ever they do is not very nice #blurgh

    It's the unit that is literally next to the station, with the little circle window above the door. IT's split over two levels, apparently.

    H
    I'll have a look out for it (should I ever get to the station again )
