I only discovered this on Sunday - fantastic views and really nice selection of different architecture for that and, I think, Ringmore Road connected to it.
Anyone know anyone that lives there?

Lovely views I totally agree. Probably got trapped in the recent snow.
I really like the two art deco houses with a nautical theme. You expect to see Poirot walking out anytime

I lived on Liphook for a number of years as a teenager. My parents still live there.

The views are great as it is the highest point in Forest Hill, the houses are all nice although most are standard 1930 detached houses, with a few bungalows mixed in.

The road is as flat as they get up there so, with most houses are built on level ground, there is almost no subsidance.

Because of the shape of the road each house has different views but the best views are from the roof of 21 or the folly in the back garden of 23.

I'm defineately with you guys on this one! The views from there are staggering. Especially the houses brian mentioned and the one with the turquoise roof/viewing deck.

I have very fond memories of playing in and around Liphook Crescent as a child from the late 1950's until early 70's and helping to deliver milk. Also use to walk a dog for someone who lived in Horniman Drive, so was there just about every evening. A good view point for November the 5th!

I used to live at 21 and always enjoyed the spectacular views.
