Cryptic chippy and other bits

Life on Marsh – from the Greenwich Phantom
Very interesting pamphlet from the 1980s about a proposed plan to build a riot police centre in Greenwich. Would be great to see the whole thing scanned.

Brockley Central reporting that Lewisham Labour councillor @CllrMikeHarris is suggesting a CarrotMob on Saturday. Turn up on Saturday and support the Lewisham Market traders. Great idea, although looks like some people may have other ideas?

And a cryptic carpenter tweeted:

Which I guess refers to 34 Montpelier Road – former home to Furley & Baker (known since 2008 on this blog as the kite shop). Maybe related to this curiously empty planning reference on the (terribly crashy) Lewisham Council Planning site. Reference DC/22/22222 if you feel like doing some detective work…

UPDATE:
Lewisham planning were very quick to come back – there is no planning permission as the nature of the building hasn’t changed significantly. And the cryptic entry on their database was just a test that went wrong… Ah well…

Oh yes, and if you haven’t already, please bit.ly/openthisdoor !

Get the sliding door reopened


I’m using the excellent new FixMyTransport to persuade Southeastern to get SouthEastern to re-open the sliding blue door!

Who wouldn’t love a website with the tag line “Euston we have a problem”?!

Can anyone explain to me why it would be a good idea to permanently close the side exit from Blackheath station by barricading it with a bannister? Tired commuters on their way home used to love gasping out into the open air. It makes no sense to keep it locked, and makes us miserable!

Please come and support me at

Thanks!

PS – The shortened version is bit.ly/openthisdoor which would probably fit on a sticker :)

The best article I’ve read on the riots.
