The space below the newly built flats where Kennington Lane meets Newington Butts now looks almost ready to open. It was going to be a Sainsbury's Local (an alcohol licence application was posted outside some time ago). Now it seems to be a 24/7 gym. What a disappointment as it would have been a good alternative to Tesco's in KP Road, but I appreciate that some people may prefer a gym. Anybody got any information about this?

Completely agree! I was waiting for a Sainsbury's with great anticipation as I live right around the corner, only to see the gym signs go up. I am actually happy about the gym too, but my expectation was Sainsburys... I'm afraid I have no information about why there was a change.

The gym is going to be open 24/7 and have no contracts, so that sounds a promising alternative to the Castle for those of us not in Southwark despite living so close to the gym.

Info about the gym:
