what kind of an area is catford?
don't live there
it began in 1973 as a utopian experiment. The population is thriving, but it is becoming ghettoised - there is much resentment amongst the tabby community about 'unfair' fish rationing.
it is blatant unfairness
I wouldn't risk it.
because SOMEONE isn't replying to my emails. And I'm hungry.
Pete knows what he's talking about
alright. there's an overland station. a rubbish mews and a tesco.
the only good thing there is a weird little second hand store in the mews which sells records and books and the dude that runs it is into conspiracy theories and is a LEGEND.
otherwise. shit. and the nightbus back there is FUCKING awful and takes about an hour and a half.
I live in Forest Hill, the classier bit, but really it's 15 mins walk to Forest Hill and 12 to Catford. It is pretty much a shithole but ignore Sarky there's LOADS of buses that stop there so it's pretty handy that way, and cheap. But I'd rather live in Lewisham or New Cross or Forest Hill, but that's expensive now (our house went up about £150,000 in 6 years)
i nearly choked :P
oh wait there's that shitty one up on the hill or something.
whatever. if you're going to go south, go to new cross. or greenwich. *maybe* lewisham.
I thought you said you LIVED there once!?
and i haven't lived there for 3 years. and i try to blank it out of my head :p
sorta parallel with Stanstead and quite nice really, if a bit dull.
There's some decent pubs around - Rutland (old man's but good music on) erm...the Fox and Firkin. That's it actually.
that's where i was! :)
but this causes me a lot of hassle, forgetting which one goes where and stuff
Apart from catford centre, because the sign has a giant plastic cat on it.
But basically, it's just very boring.
I find this with lewisham also. These places are shit and by all means should be full of interesting characters, but they really aren't/
anywhere in albion....
but i need to know about it.
is it, like, uniquely shitty, rundown and dangerous?
it's a kind of non-place really.
it is pretty scary but i "lived" (my mum lived there) there between the ages of 11-13 so i guess that's why. i wouldn't live there again though
