It's explained there. They're planning to demolish part of it (listed) in order to build more train lines. Rubbishness!
they should be knocking down Southwark Cathedral for this sort of thing?
for the market?
lady meths will be pissed off! i love it!
I love that market. It's expensive but it's wonderful. I remember sitting there one rainy Friday by myself, when I turned around and heard the most amazing tenor launch into action... I looked over and saw a fruiter wearing a tracksuit and flip flops - and he weighed about 30 stone. But man, could he sing! It was one of those 'sit there on my own and smile' moments... and a definate 'I love London' moment...
and yes, while the food is expensive you can actually get the most amazing produce - best in London I think.
And yeah, the fact it was a fruiter amazed me too, hence the smile at the time.. if it were simply a tenor performing, there would have been tears :)
I used to buy a lot of duck from that market once upon a time when I cooked lots.
