Can anyone confirm or deny (but hopefully confirm) that its Wembley that I can see from the top of Forest Hill Road?
If it is, what/where are those tower blocks partially obscuring it?

You can definitely see the new Wembley arch from Forest Hill. Unfortunately I am not sure of the specific view you mention so I can't help with the blocks question.

Do you mean from the roundabout at the junction of HO,HOP and FHR? Can they see FH from Wembley, I think thats the question!
Incidentally, you can see the Canary Wharf tower from the railway bridge should that particular landmark also take your fancy. And of course you can see everywhere else from the top of Canonbie....

i mean the view from the road up from HOP station, as you drop back down towards Peckham Rye - i think its Forest Hill Road. After the new speed humps (that narrows it down!)

There's no roundabout there Roz.
I have just had a go on the London Eye this afternoon and had a great view of this area. You can see One Tree Hill - the block of flats in Honor Oak Rise is identifiable (the line of Poplars separating the recreation ground and the cemetry were also very clear).
There was also a very good view of the posh estate - the steep rise of Tewkesbury Avenue is quite distinct.

of course the distinct steep rise is "Ringmore Rise"

Wembley is certainly visible from Westwood Park, next to the Horniman museum entrance, a great view from Ringmore Rise too.
I can't wait for the Shard at London Bridge to be built - 310m compared with 133m for the Wembley arch. It will be awesome.

I walked over the brow of the hill this morning and noticed the tower blocks you mentioned Hoppy.
The one on the left is part of Guys Hospital by London Bridge.
