Olympics sessions at Clarendon Hotel today

Don’t forget that the informal sessions about the Olympics parking arrangements are being held today (Friday 3rd Feb) and tomorrow at the Clarendon Hotel.  I’m hoping to go along tomorrow, but if you manage to get there before me, please drop a note into the comments, and don’t forget to go and admire the ugly statue…

Also, the licensing for the big screen live site was agreed in a council meeting on 1st Feb. A pedantic thought: if I don’t own a TV license, and I watch the Olympics on the screen, am I breaking the law, or are Lewisham council?

Seventies bus and a forgotten hotel


Great photo from 1974 of a Number 54 bus passing the Heathview hotel in Montpelier Row by Lloyd Rich on Flickr. As one commenter pointed out “just about to be overtaken by Emma Peel too”. Sent in response to the perennially popular post Memories of Blackheath 1944-1958 by Bob Land.

Post here by the Phantom, about the Heathview as it was called.
Another photo here.
