    There are some shitholes round here. Whether it's the scummy, ratpiss-infested wino excavation wasteland or the acres of chinless NIMBY haven't-spoken-to-another-disgusting-human-being-since-I-was-a-wayward-youth-living-in-the-slums-of-Manchester whitewashed lawyer-belt...where is the true filth??!

    Some wild generalisations going on there. Good and bad people in every area.

    Thamesmead and Abbey Wood is an area I would hate to have no choice but to live in.

    From experience I have only lived around Deptford and New Cross which were both alright. Sometimes I had to go down to Lewisham town centre which seemed to be a bit of a scally infested shit hole.

    I wouldn't like to live on Downham Way.

    But I would far prefer it to the concrete hell of Thamesmead.

    I wouldnt like to live on Downham way either but putting all of Downham (which is quite big innit) under the same umbrella cheesed me off :D but each to their own innit :D

    It looks REALLY nice, if its the same people who manage The Bridge and Ladywell Leisure Centre, does that mean Im already a member?

    Of course, I don't disagree, there are some very decent places in SE London. For example, I think Crystal Palace is great, Greenwich and Camberwell are pretty cool and Blackheath, Forest Hill, East Dulwich and Beckenham, if culturally 'thin', are okay places for a number of things. What I mean here is specifically the shitty and down-at-heel (e.g. Penge) or the wholesome-but-dull-as-ditchwater (e.g. Orpington), the kind of thing there seems to be a lot of in SE London.

    Poll may follow. :cool:

    Abbeywood and Thamesmead by far! Truly horrid. Great place to buy or sell drugs.

    Thamesmead is a crap hole.

    I agree with you, I also have no real choice but to live there.:(

    scifisam feck! arse! girls! drink!

    Thamesmead s probably the worst place I've been to in England, let alone London. I almost ended up living there too.

    I remember when it used to be really easy to get a council flat there because noone wanted to live there. Filmmakers seem to like it, it's been used as the set for Clockwork Orange and Beautiful Thing.
    Not as much the shithole it used to be


    but I still wouldn't like to live there..

    Thorton Heath, Walworth, Catford....
  25. ViolentPanda

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Eltham is okay if you're white, not so cool if you're not.

    Plumstead used to be a total shit-hole, but is a bit better now than it was.

    West Croydon has it's "charming" bits - wandering round on a weekend night can be fun/injurous to your health.

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    Don't think Croydon is that bad.

    Still LOL at Badly Drawn Girl describing Orpington as 'wholesome'!

    Awesome :D

    I really hated living in Lewisham, parts of Bermondsey are pretty shit as well but not nearly in the same league
