it's on the tube. Is it nice?
Why is Grange Hill now set in Liverpool?
Did James ever come good on his ambition to have his photo taken at Grange Hill station holding a sausage on a fork?
about 15 minutes down the central line from me
i've never made the pilgrimage
but that is a plan. Difficult though as sureely you would need the fork to come flying in?
Why not change the name, Grange Hill is Grange Hill. It is Landahn with Landahn youths.
they have filmed in my mum and dads shop before. That doesn't make me cool in the slightest.
Accidentally ended up there when I got on a random bus looking for a bank. It wasn't really all that much to write home about. Pretty much everything to the north and east of Walthamstow is relentlessly depressing
and he's not actually 25, the fraud
My real name's not actually "Billion-Dollar Burning Coffin", so I'm not going to sdtart judging others for lying on the internet.
updating my profile several times, but it insists I am still 25.
Murdoch's gonna fire your ass.
you never know though
have this new username, under which I am a right troll cunt
i like it
the picture is good too
Can't you restrain your trolling to the Sun's boards? Or is it developing into a full-blown obsession? I did tell you to be careful about taking your work home with you.
I've been to every station on the tube map
I did it over a period of a week in my second year at university. It started with an ambition to go to every single stop on the east london line, so I thought, why stop there
was it gratifying?
would you recommend it?
any gems amongst the less well-known outposts of the tube network?
But I'm obsessed with the tube.
Most of the outlying parts are rubbish and really neglected. Each line has its own cool style, but as stations get renovated these aren't being kept and they're all just turning into the same station.
Stations I like:-
Hillingdon (I lived here for 18 years, it's special)
Canary Wharf (it's like the future!)
Bank (it's like a mini maze!)
Westminster (it's like there was a nuclear war and we all have to live underground)
White City (BBC! And I also admire how drivers just brazenly stop here for hours at a time)
I've not been through Canary Wharf station proper, but I got the DLR up from Cutty Sark along that branch the other day. It's quite cool, and the nearest I've come yet to feeling like a monorail driver.
Bank is shit though.
the DLR is like amazing, unless you have to use it every day, in which case I imagine it's rubbish
and thus, not the vision of commuter hell I imagine it becomes every weekday morning
into what people in the 60s thought the future would look like
especially at night going through the big buildings sat at the front pretending to drive, like a spakk
I agree with most of your good stations. I would add in Baker Street to the bad ones because every fucking time I go through there I end up with Baker Street saxophone line in my head for 3 days.
I realise I have never been beyond zone 3 on the tube, I need to rectify this. I want to go to Mudchute and Gallion's reach.
thanks. I like the name
is about 100 metres from the actual grange hill school. I see it everyday when i go down the drive to work.
Its surreal. Also the corridor downstairs where the toilets are is where they film many of the 'corridor' scenes.
