Auntie Pat, I also think that the Grange Road
area is pretty safe! I stagger home at all hours and have never felt unsafe!
The ONLY issue I ever had was in 2005, when a kid tried (and failed!) to grab my bag when he cycled past. And he was lucky he rode away fast - I was so furious that I probably would have beaten the little b*gger to a pulp if I'd caught him - all 5ft of me. Don't mess with little people, we're very feisty! :o)
Surely no trouble for 15 years is a sign that the area IS reasonably safe (but let's be realistic - this is central London, nowhere is completely safe!)
But I've got a friend who was mugged in a very posh road in Clapham and another who was stabbed in Lambeth so I think that muggings and this kind of thing can happen anywhere in London!
