Brockley Bites

Goodbye Maypole

The Maypole pub, which once graced the western exit of Brockley Station, is now gone, reduced to a pile of rubble, to be replaced with the Glasshouse. You'll all be glad to hear that Eternal Jerk Chicken is still standing proud though.

East London Line works ruin new year commute

Not for us, for users of Liverpool Street, whose services were disrupted today by overrunning work on the East London Line. We mention this only because a) with all sympathy for those commuters, it's nice to see that the builders are getting on with it and b) we are wondering whether anyone has yet noticed any impact from the ELL's closure on their journeys from Brockley, St John's and New Cross Gate?
