I am listening to Vanessa on the radio and people are ringing in saying how fantastic an area it is. The discussion has come from an article in The Times saying we are the hot place to live with amazing views. They are encouraging people to buy "trophy houses" in Forest Hill.

So can we expect an influx of buyers for the Forest Central flats now???

I'm pretty sure she meant the article from yesterdays Evening Standard which is mentioned on the "Forest Hill get ready to Fizz" thread.

BD was on Vanessa once talking about older parents (my father was Gordon Brown's age when he had his last child). She was more interested in my parents' love life.

He is also waiting for Robert Elms to get back to me with my suggestion that the MPT was the famous South London pub which also featured a chapel of rest. Can Steve G or other historians confirm?

Its interesting about the MPT; it wouldn't surprise me as some Irish country pubs have a range of uses also. I know the St Giles Crypt in Camberwell which hosts a jazz club every Friday has some tombs in there- not suprisingly for a church crypt I suppose but its amazing to think when your'e in there listening to music you're only a few feet away from some Dead People. I believe the tombs are just behind the bar area.

Thank you Loca, I listened to some of the programme. Has anybody else listened to it ? I found it so bizarre to listen to all those calling in and their perception of Forest Hill! There was a gentleman at the beginning of the broadcast calling from Reigate talking very badly about Forest Hill but not realising that he had actually visited parts of East Dulwich. I lived in Reigate for many years and although it is in the Surrey and part of the ?bankers? belt?, there is more drug dealing in any of the pubs/bars in this small market town than in any of our pubs, I am quite sure. Anyway, I found the enthusiasm of the many who called in to express their happiness with Forest Hill quite encouraging if a little unrealistic.
