Wood Green chitter-chatter..

You're probably right about the pavement development, Hollis - I feel a frisson just thinking about it. Although we are geting new lamp posts up our way.

Let us know what the foyer's like, won't you?
 

Hollis

Bloody furious
The foyer was abit of a let down - I was hoping they'd have a plaque to the WWII dead in their. But if they have its not in the entrance foyer. As it is there's just this beast opposite.. But I think it only has names of the WWI dead.



There was some old biddy in there and a security guard, but neither seemed that interested in me.

The bridge reinforcement has taken a dramatic turn! We now have bright green cycle lanes painted on either side of the road. Can't wait for the rest of the road markings, then my life will truly be complete.

Commiserations :(

The road markings on the bridge are now complete.

There's still a fucking great load of mud left on my road after the new sewage pipe was laid. The shopkeepers are none too pleased.

And the new lamp posts are taking ages to put in. The pavement now has lots of flooded holes.

Go uphill up Station Road from Wood Green, this becomes Buckingham Road, go past Ally Pally station (on the left) and the road bears left over the railway. This is the bridge as it used to be:

Bollard and road-narrows sign knocked over on Bedford Road (by AP station footbridge) this morning. Paving stones at weird angles as a result.

Was in the Green Sunday and it was a sea of plastic barriers in that area still. It was confusing and so complicated I decided not to cross the road

bump....the Wood Green Sandwich bar report for Wood Green workers.
Sarnie bar oposite post office. Limited range, but great if you like coriander chicken and salad boxes based on same.
Jenny's in market by wood green shopping city; wannabe wimpy's good for burgers only.
sarnie bar at back of same market. Terrif for smoked salmon/tuna sarnies, decent cuppa.
Subway; fine, if you like subway's.
Gregg's. slow as fuck in serving people.
Bagel joint by library; good range, sublime cream cheese bagel, generally good.
sarnie bar 4 down past library on way to shopping city; not cheap, but stuff is generally excellent

I have moved back technically wood green but right near bounds green tube really and Im loving it lot of shops changed to polish ones but I fit right in being a scummy Irishman and all that among all the supposed scum and riff raff I fit right in ...:) Seems that a lot of wood green people post here so any chance of a catchup with anyone in wood green pint wise

I have drunk in the Irish pub in Wood Green a few times, a couple of cousins are regulars - Monaghan's Tavern, just up the hill from the station.

When I was there last Sunday the partitions were still up round the station causing mass confusion. Got myself some nice toffee from Thorntons tho :)

Was down the Green yesterday. Bollards removed though the pavement etc all looks the same.

Usual rabble of push chairs and unemployed folk speaking in tongues.

Haha! I know who that ^ is dressed as Lynn Featherstone/Death! :cool:

On an arguably less exciting note, Palace Gates Road will soon be graced by two posh new traffic-calming humps.

Brains SA and Sharp's Doom Bar now available in The Gate.

Was down the Green today. Mut say the new crossing in very good, allowing the pelican from the station to Morrisons
