can anyone tell me the name of the park in grange road its approx 500 yards past henley drive heading towards tower bridge road, when i stayed in bermondsey for a while i used to sit in there on a sunday morning reading the papers and usualy nursing a hangover, its on the same side as a pub called the fort < which incidently i made the mistake of going into on a saturday night > ....and is the cafe still there, further down on the same side as the park ? it was across from a petrol station.
i have great memories of the grange road area and the people of that area, who like the scots call a spade a f****** shovel !...

I wouldn't say you were there for a "swift one" either!

I wasn't, no-- in spite of numerous invitations. Am not the 'swift' type...
