    We can do that next time I’m in Plumstead mate. We can have a pint in the Royal Oak,birthplace of the Arsenal.

    The mortgage thing might have been the case in the past. But house prices down here are on a par with some parts of London now, whilst wages are still well below the national average.

    What was the business your old man had ?

    Skip Hire

    first winter there he got up one morning and went to the yard on his 50cc bike . Loads up and sets off in a smattering of snow . Arrives at first stop which was a hotel and as he pulled up the owner came out
    owner "what you doing here"
    Dad "it's Friday swop over day" while mentally desperately checking it really was Friday
    owner "yeah but the snow ! "
    Dad "its only light shower for Gods sake"
    owner "down here mate we close up when its like this"

    <laugh>

    Just realised that PNP has got me on ignore and Brb has got PNP on ignore, so he won’t have seen any of that beef earlier
    ah **** man, so much of Plumstead and Woolwich has changed since I was there. Glad to hear the Star is still there though. What about the Prince of Wales just up the road ?

    My mother in law still lives in the flats up near Rockcliffe manor school, so I’m back that way now and again, but I haven’t had a good nose around the area for probs 25 years now !

    Woolwich and Plumstead are weird nowadays.
    Lots of poverty, lots of average money and a surprising amount of new jags, Mercs, Range Rovers and Bentleys ffs <laugh>

    I remember when the DLR came to Lewisham. It was like going on a really slow rollercoaster <laugh>

    My brother is a tech geek, so trains, aeroplanes, and anything to do with engineering or technology is right up his street. When the DLR first opened he made me and him catch a train from North Greenwich all around the docks and back again. That must have been back in the late 80's. It was boring as **** lol

    Houses on Thamesmead going for £400k plus ... when I was a kid they serious considered building a moat round there to keep us in <laugh>

    The DLR and the coming Cross Rail (Elizabeth line) are big reasons as to why houses round here are so stupidity expensive.
    My other half and me couldn't afford to buy round hear now ... my wage ain't great but is OK but my other half is on very good money yet we could afford a 2 bed flat round here ffs.

    Thank **** we bought back in the mid 1990s.

    Yeah it's nuts innit.

    Thamesmead is such a ****hole. Remember pushing my mate's old Suzuki SJ410 into a lake down there so that he could claim on his insurance <laugh>

    A few years ago, when I was back up that way, I was looking at house prices and some of the flats on the Pepys estate were going for £350k. That place was like ****ing Beirut in the early 80's. I used to do a paper round there as a kid and found a severed finger in the stairwell of one of the flats once.

    If they ever drained the lakes on thamesmead they'd never be able to find space to put all the cars and motor bikes they find <laugh>

    When I was 16 or 17 I was going back to a mates after a night in the local pub on tavy bridge (desperate days!!!) and we heard what we thought was an explosion...so being stupid we went to look...turns out it was a washing machine that had been pushed off one of the tower blocks.

    Every paving stone in a 20 yard radius was broken and loads of cars had holes in them from washing machine shrapnel.
    **** knows how no one was at least maimed <laugh>
