[quote beetroot]That's ridiculous. Every one of them is in SE1.
I only gave it a cursory glance, but there was a shot of The Mayflower pub, that is in Rotherhithe Street, SE16, and the pseuds corner contender Rotherhithe Village can be nowhere else than SE16.
You couldn't make it up! Oh wait, hang on though.
I lived in Rotherhithe for 16 years, and worked in the beautiful Georgian 'Old Schoolhouse' for 5 of those years.
There is an element of great charm about that immediate area, with St Mary's, The Mayflower, Rotherhithe Picture Library and Sands films. The cobbles returned a few years after the Council had spent a lot of money covering the old cobbles - and it was the Council that created the name: Rotherhithe Village.
The building programme over recent years has created hundreds of new flats; it is one of the very few areas where property prices have increased, during the recession.
Indeed, this was a stupid and totally incorrect headline from the Editor, or the Sub; some better research wouldn't have gone amiss: Sortwave tickets are now £8 and, of course, the Pizzaro isn't open.
Yes love that little stretch of rotherhithe. Its really nice now and a lovely walk on sundays. There are also lots of amazing cherry trees which i try and get the husband to pick from in summer. Drinks in the mayflower are overpriced though. Are the kobi burgers much cop?
Re the article I think it started out as a piece principally on bermondsey and they tried to mispackage it as some se16/se1 piece. If it was about se1 surely they would put in southbank, lower marsh etc?
