There were attempts to call Bermondsey SOBO as I recall; South of Borough.

Kidbrooke is now called Kidbrooke Village. It still has idiots, but that's as far as any similarity to a village goes. And planning has gone in for a high rise taller than the demolished Ferrier Estate. How lovely.

Some people move to an area because it has decent schools, decent transport links and decent green spaces. I like to think that people are attracted to our part of South East London because it has more than that..it has a DECENT FOOTBALL TEAM!!!!!

Went back to PR a few weeks ago. Can't believe the pace of change even since September when we left. And compare it to 2007 - well.

There are some genuinely interesting parts of South London. But I guess 'on the rise' equates to house prices, sadly. For that reason my money is on Anerley and Norwood Junction. If I had any money, that is.

Seriously, Norwood Junc will start to smell of pungent cheese and charcuterie after 2-3 years tops. Mark my words.

South Norwood will be on Red Nose Day next year. Except don't donate money donate chicken, nail and hair products.

Grant you the transport links to London are very attractive, struggling to think of anything else though.

Only a new build version of The Tavern is left and that loses its license quite regularly. The Baring Hall has an interesting new guise.

As for gentrification I couldn't ever see the area on the Springbank Road side being dragged up by the area on the Lee side aside from the Corbett Estate.

It's also now quite overgrown in places and also full of rats. I took my kids back there last summer.

Hadn't been there for years and was a bit disappointed as it used to be a really lovely well kept park.

You mean Cobbs Corner, Wells Park, Woolworths with the sloping floor, Rolf Harris as a neighbour, Greyhound and Golden Lion pubs, Montecassino restaurant - no idea but would love to know, not lived there for 30 years.

Part of the development is now called the Blackheath Quarter even though it is firmly in Kidbrooke.

However, the investors who seem happy to pay £500k for a 2 bedroom flat and service charges of £3k p.a. probably won't know the difference.

Of concern is the fact that as the developers build more there is less parking available. I understand some blocks will have no parking on the basis the 'Village' has excellent transport links i.e. 2 buses and a single line London / Dartford train line.
