Sydenham Hill woods has bluebells - not carpets of them but bluebells none the less and the woods are beautiful.

Re: Kirkdale Costcutter

One of the builders told us that it was going to be an Italian/Albanian restaurant - odd fusion. I think he was yanking our chain.
We have since spoken to another builder who told us that it was to become three shops but nfda.

Re: The Moustache

We popped in for a coffee on Saturday evening before going off to a restaurant and wished we had stayed at The Moustache.
Great coffee, beautifully candle-lit and just really relaxing. Big thumbs up here.

Re: Lasers?

Was at my daughters house in Mottingham Lane on ..... Wednesday or Thursday night. Suddenly what
appeared to be a flash of light lit up back room coming from garden. We wondered what it was and still
don't know. Interesting.

Re: water pressure

I've just been on to Thames Water twitter and I'm sure most people know by now that the nearest bottle station is in High Level Drive. Evidentally there are only five stations providing bottled water in the affected areas. The trays are so heavy to carry home and I pity the elderly. Can you imagine ...

Re: water pressure

Woke up just now in the hope that we might have water. Managed to fill two saucepans of water from the slow dribble coming out of tap - just enough to flush the toilet (oh my god. the toilet!!!!) Now no dribble at all and so we will be making another trip to High Level Drive to replenish the water s...

Re: water pressure

Still no water in Kirkdale, the Sydenham Hill end anyway. There is a water "station" in High Level Drive
where we were given trays of bottled water but then had to carry them back to Kirkdale - quite heavy but
much needed. No idea when our water will be on again.

Boarded up shop near Costcutters

I'm sure this shop has had a mention before but if so Ive missed it. The boarded up shop on the corner a couple of doors down from Costcutters has been empty for literally years and I often wonder why. I think Im right in saying the last time it was in use was as a Thai restaurant. It is an eyesore ...

Re: Litter on the streets of Sydenham

As far as fly tipping goes Lewisham Council will take away large household items like sofas etc for I believe five pounds per item. A few years ago we wanted to get rid of my mothers old sofa and went online to Bromley Council website and were shocked at how much they wanted to come and take it away...

Re: Food and drink venues in Sydenham

I agree. Never eaten in the restaurant but have ordered food from them. Really tasty and fresh.
Good menu and I think by far the best food in Sydenham.

She had her own flat with all her own furniture It was very spacious. There is 24 hour care there so that she was looked after from the moment she woke up with washi...

Photos of Kirkdale

Can anyone tell me where I might buy old photos of Kirkdale lets say pre 1950? I have
found two, one of the top of Kirkdale where it junctions with Sydenham Hill and one where
it junctions with Dartmouth Rd, but it is the in-between these two junctions that I am
interested in.
