Brockley in the media

The Guardian, April 25th

Brockley and New Cross each secured a mention in the Guardian's 'blog-by-blog guide to London', which sought out uncelebrated exotica in the capital. Obviously, anything in South East London, other than Greenwich, automatically qualifies as 'a secret'...

The Sunday Telegraph, April 27th

Loft living in Honor Oak. Alright, not really Brockley, but it talks about the impact of the East London Line on the area...

... talking of blogs I saw this one in today's Guardian.

The title is a little misleading, it applies to middle class wannabees as well... funny AND it's American! would you believe it.

Good to see the Rivoli Ballroom get a mention (although it's not actually in Lewisham itself, just in the borough of the same name...I do wonder how much research some of these journalists actually do!).

Has anyone actually been to Chislehurst Caves? They're talked up as one of SE London's biggest attractions. Are there guided tours or anything like that?

There are guided tours. They're a bit cheesy but I think it's going at least once. People used them as air raid shelters during the war and that's quite a thought.

Worth going! Must proofread.

Very impressive - but quite hard to find. Lovely and cool on a hot summers day. One of those tourist gems on the southern borders of London like Eltham Palace and Darwin's House.

Darwin's house (Downe House) is a great day out. If you're feeling energetic, you can do what we did and get the train to Orpington, then walk to Downe, see the house, and walk back to Hayes to get the train home. A good day's walk with a break in the middle for sightseeing and lunch!

The Rivoli is gorgeous inside. I wish I had more cause to go there.


The Hackney city farm is a great place aswell. I worked there on a voluntary basis, so it has a special place in my heart. I had to care for this a little black lamb called Cassie which had been abandoned by its mother. I had to make up it's bottle and feed it.
What a great job, not so great was cleaning out the cow shed, done only twice per year. The mortification I felt having to go home that evening via public transport, there being no shower facilities on site. : (

You get fabulously fresh eggs from city farms too and you get a choice duck, hen's. Good times!
