Re: Bell Green cattle trough stolen

Very sad to read that local history is now being stolen.
The one at bell green was originally at kent house road I think. Well, my sketchy memory from being a kid walking past it in the 60's seems to remember that.

Re: Cox's Walk footbridge

I was there last weekend. There's information about it by the entrance to the woods. We walked down to the bridge and when you see the oaks they are beautiful and home to wildlife. I've signed and hope that the council think again. If they were in a conservation area they'd have a TPO on them. Would...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Thank you for posting the info.
Not that I let my preschool grandson anywhere near water I can't see the bottom of, it's worrying to know that water that deep is there.
It's a good park to let kids run off steam due to the large expanse of grass but think I'll stick to others for now.

Re: Bingo and bikes in Sydenham

I think the bingo hall is for the old (snooker?) club that is accessed from Spring Hill.
It's about the right size for one too from memory, but that's going back to the 80's when it was a bar with live music.
Unless it got incorporated into the night club when it changed hands?

Not just piles of rubbish to worry about, but theft and assault too. Must have been very frightening for those who were there.

Re: Disease carrying slugs hit Sydenham

It's not a recent thing. Back in the 80's I lived in the Thorpes and my cat got lung worm. Treated by the vet (Paul someone, lovely guy committed suicide unfortunately a few days later) who opened the Vets on Mayow Road. He thought it was cancer and advised me to have her put down. I asked for the e...

It's not going to stop speeding cars. As I said earlier it's not normal people who speed it's the d**k heads who do and don't care. My son aged 12, many moons ago, was hit by a speeding car in our road as he crossed. Dropping the speed limit isn't going to stop that sort of thing happening. From the...
