it comes down to where you live. Central London is far better set up for outside space / facilities than Croydon is. You must have Russell Square, Lincoln Inn Fields, Hyde Park and Regent's Park all in walking distance from you.

A little different to Croham Hurst.

I have to say - good.

Methinks there are a lot of people on the Telegraph editorial panel with BTL's as this looks like special pleading par excellance.

Houses on the market will be good for the economy generally when people buy houses they spend out on other things as well - kitchens , bathrooms etc far more than the average rather stingy BTL landlord does.

The main one being corams field in terms of kids play. I recall training on concrete for more than one football team as a kid. Perhaps it is just luck of the draw but they have access to some really decent open spaces and facilities. Mind you not all of them are as brilliant as corams in terms of just being able to pile on and have a kick about. There are loads of playgrounds and parks though. Not sure about Stockholm but you are right London does do a fairly good job of providing outside spaces for kids and general recreation. I know when i was a kid the park felt like a bloody long way away and it was invariably covered in dog shit.

So many places near me and in the block i live in have a constant flow of suitcases coming and going. Just in Barter street alone which must have a maximum of 25 residential properties there are at least 5 properties playing that game.

I practically lived on Croham Hurst when I was a kid. You could do whatever the Sam Hell you wanted - no parkies and very few adults, plenty of places to hide and trees to climb, hills to bundle down on anything with wheels, and you could see for miles from the bit that looks out South.

Unless you're looking for buggery, Croham Hurst has it big time over Russell Square. I always tried to be the first up there after snowfalls. It was a magic place.Smoked my first reefer there, as well.

so it's just a shit Hampstead Heath.

Though quite good when it snowed. Tobogganing had that I might very well die in a minute scariness to it.

Out of interest does it impact on your quality of life or cause problems ?

It had it's positives that's for sure. It wasn't great for a kick about mind. Hence the golfers getting pretty irate when we used go on the fairway of the 3rd hole and have a game.

Russell Square doesn't compare you are right :-).

Rarely.. I can only think of one occasion when the place opposite was rented by some tourists that got royally pissed and locked themselves out. They proceeded to make a right racket late at night and tried to kick in the communal entrance door to the place they were staying.

I would prefer it wasn't going on as the block we are in for example is 8 flats and you get to know everyone. Which i think is good for security and generally ironing out any problems. I understand why people might do it though and it hasn't really caused us any issues.

It was pretty lively for tobogganing and go-carts. Especially when you went head first.
We used to break into the Old Whitgiftians to play football.

We used to rent holiday homes when the kids were young and we always respected and got on with the neighbours especially the ones with young kids themselves as they would invariably end out playing together lol .

Actually apparently that steep pebble hill down the Sanderstead side used to be called Breakneck Hill, in the early twentieth century.

My woeful piece of geography coursework will tell you it is in fact a raised beach. Well it might not be but that's what i said it was for a half arsed C grade.

That was cool though... like something out of the goonies... In hindsight i didn't appreciate croham hurst quite as much as i should have. Perhaps because by the time i was old enough to be let out alone with my mates. I was just interested in football and trying to get the only girls we knew to come out (in the old fashioned sense).

indeed. In fact the only time I have been more scared when tobogganing was when once, while drunk, a group of us decided to toboggan off Clifford's Tower in York on tea trays and I failed to stop and went straight across one of the main roads out of the town.

There was a lot of screeching of tyres, a small crash and some running away involved.

Yes, apparently that's why you get all those rounded pebbles. the beach thing, I mean. Not the lesbians.
