i lived on Elim from 2000-2006; have mainly v happy memories and the location is second to none. When they built the basket ball courts that led to some teenage stairwell sitting that used to annoy me but it was more of an annoyance than a nuisance if you know what I mean. friendly little estate IMO
I had relatives who lived there in the 1920s, so probably not very helpful! Hope you get the info you need. The general area is good, you're close to bus routes and Borough tube is just up the road. I would recommend Simon the Tanner as a local pub.
