That's ok - I didn't take it seriously.

Absolutely not serious! I was just intrigued as to how someone from Dorset arrived with us! Delighted! come one come all! James, dont be so suspicous of me!

Don't blame James - he was just being careful.

My grandparents lived in Swan Mead, off Tower Bridge Road, and I spent many happy times there. I regret having gone back after the flats were demolished to see the wasteland that was left. I guess it has now been redeveloped - it looks like it from google earth but I can't find anything about it online. It is only a small road after all.
My great grandfather ran The Duke of Clarence, The Cross Keys & Railway Hotel, and The Albion, all in Blackfriars Road in the 1800's and I am trying to find out as much as possible about the pubs. I've had some success but if anyone has anything interesting I would like to hear it.

Forget Google earth. Instead have a look at the aerial photographs on - as somebody somewhere else pointed out, they are fantastic.

Possibly even better are the bird's eye ones on - the property website.

The aerial photos on are at least five years out of date - at least over my patch....

Thanks for those suggestions. Live Search Maps are also good, with Birds Eye Views. This could be the same as 192 though.

The Princess Street Group Practice's move to the Borough Road chapel has been abandoned:

Pity that.

I suppose we can only hope that the new design is a bit less of a shameless bit of facadism. The previous scheme kept only the front of the chapel with no logical relationship to the rest of the scheme.

The terrace will probably be sold off at a tidy profit now that the subsidised stabilisation has been completed. All sounds very similar to what happened at the lying in hospital..
