Brock Mania

Perhaps we have gone too far.

We've been tweeted by a BC reader, asking what we think of Forest Hill as an alternative to Brockley.

After weeks of trying to find a place in SE4, she "pitched up last Saturday to view a house only to be met with a load of identikit young childless couples (us included), practically queueing to get in."

"As you know, it's a nice area with lush houses, zone 2 with the East London Line coming, perfect for us EC1 workers looking for the quiet life. But perhaps we have just been priced out of Brockley now."

If anyone else is househunting in the area at the moment, please let us know if you've had the same experience.
