Having just brought this up in Chatter I thought I might put the feelers out in SE1.
I have often mourned the disappearance of the Sarsons factory on Tower Bridge Road
. It used to smell lovely and vinegary up there even long after production had ceased, the big wooden vats giving off a wonderful aroma that always made me crave fish and chips.
I heard recently that there is a group of local residents trying to shutdown or move the coffee roasters near my estate. Not sure exactly where they are but it must be around Wilds Rents somewhere as you get this incredible smell of roasting coffee beans most mornings around 10 that pervades the whole area. Well apparantly this is the reason that some people want to close it down.
Does anyone else agree that they must be nuts? We've already lost the smell of bread being baked every morning when they replaced the Bakers Oven with the frankly sh**ty Gregs (who don't bake).
Has anyone else come across this campaign? Is it to be taken seriously?
