I think the area is great, buy while you can. Not overpriced everything is on your doorstep. The City, various cultural establishments, the local history. No more horrendous journeys commuting, no more shivering on wet and windy platforms, or stuck in traffic jams just to earn an honest (?) crust! Long Lane
will be a great investment, Bermondsey Street
, The Antique Market on Friday morning is a delight... get there early for bargains....
Friends of mine bought a one bedroomed property in a small block Long Lane
, ex-authority, small well maintained block, entry phone, two years ago for £98.(thous.) similar property is now going for £130 plus. but my friends aree staying put, they love the area.
