Endwell Court improvements

Endwell Court is the block of flats on the corner of Mantle Road and Brockley Cross. Until recently, it looked abandoned and unloved, but it was in fact home to four 3-bed flats and is now covered in scaffolding, to allow refurbishment work to take place.

The work includes re-roofing, replacement of the windows and exterior repair, as well as an internal redecoration, which should mean decent face lift, when the wrapping comes off in October.

With thanks to Lewisham Homes for the information.

It's really great that this is happening, I think it will really contribute towards the area near the station being a more pleasant place and create a better impression for those of us who exit the station on Mantle Rd.

I spoke to one of the builders a week or two ago and he said that was absolute hell in there before they started work and that it was a really big job sorting the place out. So this is great news for the people who live there too.

That's great to know. Thank you.

Was it my imagination or was there approval for a new residential building on the site of the old Speedicars office? Nothing seems to have happened yet though...

It really was in a sorry state, most of the front windows were broken and the window frames etc were rotting away.

However, it should never have been allowed to get to the state it did in the first place. Does anyone know who the freeholder is?

Endwell Court, thats not a very old building is it? I seem to remember it being built in about 1990 perhaps?

When Garleys the baker was still on that parade of shops opposite.

Garleys were chiefly known for not putting the jam inside their doughnuts...
