I think you're right Greg. I bet Chris is a really 'square', grey, posh civil servant!! (no offence to civil servants out there - I am one myself). :lol:

Hi Steve,

Thanks for letting me know about the old house in Home Park. God knows where the story about the old lady came from then!

History of Home Park

Here's one for you history buffs out there...... As a child, I played pretty much daily in Home Park and just behind library (in the park) used to stand an old house. We, as kids used to think it was haunted and 'dare' each other to go near it. It used to be fenced off, so we never actually got to g...

I would like to also say that I am very happy with Mayow Road Vets. I have always used them and find them caring as well as very professional. The young lady vet is my favourite - she is a big time animal lover and makes a fuss of my cats every time we visit. I agree that the guy that owns the place...

I hope things are not starting to go downhill in Sydenham. About an hour ago, my road (which I like to think is a very nice, quiet, respectable road), was swamped with about 20 - 25 youths. They were 'tormenting' someone on the other side of the road. As she tried to get into her house, they started...

I love Sydenham too. I love my house, I love my neighbours (yes - I actually do! We're all great friends), I love the wildlife in my garden (including a woodpecker who is a regular visitor). I love the high street, I love Whites Pet shop - especially Isaac the Alsation. I love Mayow Park, I love my ...

Loved looking at those old photos. I have lived in Sydenham for most of my life and I visited Wells Parks for the first time last week and thought it was a really nice park - one of the better ones in Sydenham. If you want to see a park that's gone downhill - check Home Park out.

Yes, I agree. Sydenham is getting more noisy. Me and my husband quite often get woken up from music thumping from cars using our road as a short cut or people coming back late(ish) at night, chatting very loudly or even worse - letting their brats run riot and make loads of noise. I have a young chi...

Hi Gemstone, Just noticed your message asking after my staircase!! Therefore, sorry for delay in replying! Well, the staircase is in the exact same condition as it was when I first posted. The big QVC box of Ready Strip is still sitting in the cupboard under the stairs. I did have good intentions of...

Not sure if the different sectors are official. I would say that anything in the vicinity of the old gas works is Lower Sydenham (and years ago that was the 'poor' working class end), anything around and about Somerfields (both sides of the high street included) is Middle Sydenham and anything past ...

Thanks for the apology Leaf. Many, many moons ago, Lower Sydenham was the 'working class' end and Upper Sydenham was where most of the toffs lived. I would like to think that nowadays it didn't matter where people lived, as long as they are good hard working honest people. I'm sure there are people ...
