Sydenham SYDENHAM TOWN FORUM  

I have tried to contact the admin of Sydenham Town Forum and realise that it is not this site, but maybe someone will read it and advise me.

I have tried many times to log on. It tells me that my name is already registered and my password is incorrect. I followed their instructions as how to overcome this but the site will just not let me in, whatever I try.

If anyone from their admin reads this, please contact me at  Mail-me 

Many thanks
Steve

Sydenham Mr. Wally Barnes  

In the 1950s there was a motor cycle dealer who specialized in pre war motor bikes, Rudge, OK Supreme, Levis, Norton etc., His name was Wally Barnes, he had a lock up garage in Venner Road, if you were facing Sydenham High Street it was on the right just before the junction with Sydenham High Street. He was a great raconteur and we as teenagers loved his stories about the old motor biking days. When old enough some of us bought motorbikes off him usually in the 17/10 to 20.00 range. Anyone know what happened to Wally? How long he stayed in Venner Road or what is there now?

Sydenham  

Well, I was fascinated to read this!

Some years later, 1965 I think, I ran into Wally Barnes who was living in a somewhat ramshackle house in West Norwood. He was very anxious to sell me a Raymond Mays stord in his garage. Failing that, would I like to buy this, or maybe that? I declined these offers but I did acquire from him one of only five Bond Type C single seater F3 cars made. Being rather younger and before the police became what they are now, I was able to drive this remarkable machine from Norwood to Bexleyheath. I made many attempts to get him to tell me what he knew of the history of the car but he always got sidetracked onto something else, like his extraordinary performance in the Easter Long Handicap or somesuch at Brooklands in 1937.

Sydenham Livesey Hall  

I remember The Livesey Hall well, I suppose it's still there. I used to meet a friend of mine that lived on Perry Vale and we would go to a dance hall on Southend Lane, only really to see what talent there was (c.1956). I had an Uncle who was a stoker at the gas works and my Dad worked for Waynes Pumps in Worsley Bridge Road. I moved away in 1958.

Sydenham Bell Green Demolition  

Yeh I remember as a kid in the late fifties breaking into the condemned houses in Miall Road to make dens. One of the houses seemed to be occupied by people living rough so we kept away from them after that. I used to work in the Sydenham District Office of the gas board at Bell Green. It employed hundreds of people in gas manufacture, purchasing, sales and service and so on. I expect it's all knocked down now. We used to play the snooker at Livesey Hall at the bottom of Perry Hill. I now live in North Staffordshire.

Sydenham Very handy for central London  

Sydenham is only 15-20 mins from London Bridge and similar to London Victoria. There are also direct trains to Clapham and Balham all similar in time or less.

We live in Sydenham and there are a number of stations around that service London well and we commute there and save loads on rent!! Check out our spare room on this site! Rachel and Anir.  Mail-me

Sydenham Wiverton Road  

I lived at 106 Wiverton Road from about 1942 until 1958, all my childhood and teenage years. I now live in Gloucestershire, west of the River Severn and seldom get to London and never to South London. Could anyone take a picture of the house for me? (with the current occupants permission of course)

I used to spend a lot of time kicking a football about in the station approach when I was young and bounced it off the jimmy small school of dancing sign more than once. In later life I also met a few of the folks that used to frequent the dancing school and club that was above the school.

Hi, I used to go to Jimmy Smalls dancing school in the mid fifties, I can remember Jimmy, I was about 5 years old. This is certainly a blast from the past. His studio was in Station Road , I think just off Silverdale.

Sydenham Is it safe?  

Hello there everybody. I am a 23 year old female and I have recently moved to Sydenham (Lawrie Park road). I work 9-5 everyday at Bromley and usually reach Sydenham (Lawrie Park road) at around 5-30 p.m. I have to walk about 4-5 mins to my flat from the bus station. Is it safe to walk that distance? I am not worried about now as the days are longer, but I am a bit apprehensive about winter when it gets dark really soon. Recently, I have also noticed a few signs warning people of muggings and carjacking. All this has made me worry. Should I move out? Can someone please advise?
Thanks

This would not be final advice you can listen to. Most of the stories about the hoodies are found on the ForestHillSociety site and they appear to be centred upon an area far over towards the PerryValeSE23
side. Also,maybe more important to you,there is a real connection not too well voiced at present about the vicinity of school playgrounds and lanes to one side. If you are near a school and hoodies who acccost youngers for a tour de force to break windows then move out. I would just call into the police station-it was once in DartmouthRoad but check your area-and just ask tentatively to speak to an officer re frequency of reports to finalise your decision. GOOD FORTUNE and FAREWELL.

I vividly remember the off licence at the top of newlands park.
I can still remember the smell of the wood and bottles. We use to collect our lemonade bottles and return them for cash.cant remember how much we use to get but it seemed like a fortune. I can remember the owners I think the wife was german and they had a son and i seem to remember he later owned a furniture shop towards the top of sydenham. Later they had a couple run the off licence for them. I do remember the ice cream parlour i loved it. It was a real treat to sit and and have your icecream. Im 44 and I can just remember the cinema and it turning into safeways. I also had friends that worked in the dye factory.
Now as for the department store cobbs that was a real treat to cut through. We use to go and see father christmas there of course it later bcame twilights but they never changed the toilets they were exactly the same as when they were the store.
