After all our gnashing and wailing about the shoddy workmanship on the Brockley Common project, it's great to see something done properly. The pavement outside the Brockley Barge has been replaced by some fetching cobbles, which have dramatically improved this spot.

Even better, the traditional grey metal barriers around the Christmas tree, haven't made an appearance this year, meaning the tree actually looks festive and we've all got the chance to prove that we can pass a barrier-less tree without injuring ourselves.
