    I don't think Thornton Heath makes enough of its musical achievements as Stormzy is nominated for a Brit award.

    Everything you need to know about Croydon's MOBO 2016 nominees

    ^^^^ this article about Croydon's mobo nominees misses out Nadia Rose (this video won and is filmed on Surrey Street in Croydon)



    Eta -Stormzy is Nadia Rose's cousin.

    the high street at times has a real buzz to it. Walking it each day it grows on me all the time.

    Phew... I had really resigned myself to losing my south London status (postcode) when we moved from Crown Point but I've still got it. :D

    I'm in CR, which wouldn't bother me much except that a few doors up, in the same street, is SE.

    But I'm not in Thornton Heath. :D

    there's places in cr7 a lot further north than se25, so it's all a nonsense!

    Are there? I didn't know that.

    I am in CR0, which extends several miles south. Recently, when I was sorting out a health issue, I was told that the nearest clinic was some miles away in a place I have never visited. When I said that I was close to SE25, they checked again, and found a clinic round the corner and an easy walk away.

    There seems to be a perception that CR0 is outside of London and has nothing to do with London :)

    Also, because I am CR and not SE, I can't get any of the takeaways in Crystal Palace (or Gipsy Hill in the case of my favourite Indian restaurant - the Indian Dining Club) because their database says they will deliver to SE25 but not CR0.

    CR7, not CRO. Cr7 (thornton heath) stretches right up to norbury.
     
  12. Guineveretoo

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    Yes, I know - I saw that you said that CR7. I was just continuing the conversation about how aggrieved I am about being in CR0 :)

    And yes - good point about CR7 extending to Norbury - I didn't know that, though. I knew about Thornton Heath being CR7, but didn't realise how far north it went.

    There is a map on this site which is interesting.

    CR postcode area - Wikipedia

    As someone with a rubbish sense of direction and no geographical or spatial awareness, this is fascinating!

    CR0 is fucking enormous!!

    Both CR7 and CR4 extend much further north than I realised.

    Ok... I want this house (and it's Beulah Hill rather than the Heath)

    I want to explore the cellars. Plus it was lived in by the key local historian.

    Nice! I don't like the interior decor, though.

    And I would have to share with lots of people who liked doing housework - imagine all the chores! :eek: :)

    Who is the key local historian?

    Mrs B was on the bus over to Lewisham when this was going on. When she texted me to find out what was happening was at that part of the afternoon when they were re-opening the road after the earlier Portland Rd RTA, the emergency services were rushing to the rail carriage fire at W Croydon and the flying squad were after the robbers! Took her quite a while to get to Lewisham!:D

    regen works finally started on high street and antic is going ahead.

    those halal butchers are something else. The stuff they sell is incredible. Just wish I knew how to cook with all those different things!

    Which bit?
    Do mean the Thomas Farely?

    There goes gentrification if antic are moving in:(

    I wish it could have all the shops occupied like Sydenham high street without being taken over by incoming g people (like myself
    :rolleyes:)

    Do you have a favourite shop? I now go to the same one next to niazi bros. Otherwise it gets confusing with every shop selling the same things . They are very friendly in there. I use that bit of the high street the most. I really like the high street

    I don't think antic will make too much of a difference. It's sad when a half decent pub correlates with rising rents and house prices though, I know what you mean.

    fan of the high street too. Fav shop is cornfield bakery and I like the polish deli. Jam rock too. Hate to say it but like the Costa too. The custom is always broadly reflective of the town, and its nice for youngsters, pensioners etc. Ybr bakery do a decent coffee too. Pound lad. It's all good.

    seen the scaffolding up? They are redoing all the shop signs a la west Croydon.
     
  26. BigMoaner

    BigMoaner Don't kill the lion

    yes, Farley for antic. Deal done apparently.

    it'll be interesting to see what HSBC becomes. Anything other than a bookies will do me.

    murals going up soon. Big one by the job centre. They'll look great I reckon.

    I do really think it'll lift the area - hopefully it will be more like broad green - looks nice but still local.
