Re: Wrought Iron gates

Hi Maria, A couple of years ago we had a great gate and fence made by Jonathan Rowlandson who is based at Crystal Palace. He did everything - measuring, designing, making, and fitting.

In that time I've been aware of a couple of opportunist burglaries in the street, and the odd key down a car, but that could happen anywhere.

Fox & Hounds

Without wishing to open up a discussion on the scale of The Dolphin or The Greyhound, does anyone know what's happening at The Fox & Hounds ? There's a small notice up on the door saying "Closed for Refurbishment" but no sign of any work for several weeks. I wonder if it'll be a repain...

Jane, I had very low pressure this morning too (in Halifax Street). My boiler seemed to be working ok so I thought it must be a more general problem. Thanks for letting us know.

Lovely to see the old photos. We have only lived in Halifax Street for a couple of years, and it's great fun to try to piece together some of its history. Most of the houses are substantially the same, but most have been updated and "gentrified" a bit. The walls of the larger terraced hous...
