The Dead Zone

Here’s a thing to try if you’re coming back to Blackheath from London by train in the rush hour.  Station yourself next to someone jabbering away on their mobile phone, and watch what happens between Lewisham and Blackheath.  I guarantee you that their call will drop, just before you get to the square-looking houses on the left-hand side of the track before the Station Car Park.

I saw it happen to a girl on Tuesday evening… Sure enough, my phone refused to connect to the internet, and her call went dead.  Is there something down there between the trees?  We’re in London, it’s not an area full of skyscrapers, and it’s not in a big valley!
