Little Heath, Charlton

Myself and my husband are hoping to move to a Victorian house in Little Heath, Charlton. Can you please let us know if this is area is a good area, good transport links, things to do etc? We have one small baby and like the ide of the parks there and also closeness to London Bridge. Is Little Heath nice or not a good area re crime, safety etc?. Is there a village close? How far from Greenwich village for example - could you walk there? We love Greenwich village. The houses and road in Little Heath look quite posh hence all the questions! (we hope it is!)

Dear Sir /Madam

I saw your advert about wanting to move to Charlton we are currently looking to move to Eltham and we are very interested in viewing your property, with the possibility of swapping with you.Could you please tell me what sort of property you are looking for as your advert does not say. We have a very recently decorated property which has two bedrooms and a balcony which looks directly into Hornfair parks tennis courts.

The reason for our exchange is to be near our family and friends that live in Eltham.

Thank you for your time.

people moving here or selling a flat to buy a house. Part 1

I looked in charlton initially and charlton is definately worth considering.

However the "shooters hill slopes" just the next place along to the east (the area from the east side of woolwich common and south of plumstead common - all the way up to shooters hill) is currently considerably cheaper and just as nice. A 3 bed victorian terraced house in a quiet leafy road surrounded by woolwich common, shrewsbury Park, Plumstead common and oxleas woods costs between £265 000 to £299 000 ( about £50 000 cheaper than Charlton equivalents). Crime is low in this area. Some of the schools are very good and it is close enough to Kent for kids to apply to the grammar schools. And if you have friends and family in charlton, it is just the other side of woolwich common. The roads I am talking about include Cantwell Road, Eglinton Hill, Brent Road, Nithdale Road, Plum Lane, Tuam road, Shrewsbury Lane and kinslet Road - and those immediatley surrounding them!

Can this be right.

My daughter who lives in Charlton has just recieved notification from the council that she is to get out of her 2 bedroom flat, into a 1 bedroom flat. Because she is on her own, Can this be enforced. She has her children come to visit and also has her grandaughter of 3 yrs come to stay with her a few days. She did a mutual exchange from a 3 bedroom house, and has only been in this present flat for less than 6 months. Any advice would be very welcome.

I have lived in Troughton Road for 5 years. Its a short walk to Asda and 'charlton experience' (our slightly fondly sarcastic name for it)- a row of shops such as Next (now with Costa Coffee!), H&M, New look etc. It has a slightly shabby selection of newsagents and fast food shops at one end (don't over look chu and chos though - its a lovely litle tapas place) but I have never felt unsafe here and the proximity to station is great!! only 4 minutes to blackheath and few more to greenwich. Also nice is the Library at top of Charlton Church rd which has a cafe and lovely gardens.

Charlton is a great place to live

Hi there,

I live in Charlton with my 11 year old daughter and we love it. Its calm with parks around. The best primary school in my eyes is Thorntree. Its a small school and the teachers are brilliant! I couldnt say anything bad about Charlton in general. Its also ok for public transport with Charlton station and the O2 close. By the way if you have not found a place to live yet then would you be interested in sharing a place? My current flatmates (single mum with 4 year old) will move out and I am looking to move with someone else. to save some money etc. I am looking to live with another single mum or dad. Let me know if you are interested.

Hornfair Park

Is it true that the youths vandalised the pavilion near the bowling Green too? It is probably too sensible for the vandals to join a sports organisation and participate as they would probably get more enjoyment from it, whatever sport it might be. It is the difference between positive or negative.

When I was growing-up during the 1950s when Hornfair Park was great, my pals and I had tremendous fun from the facilities including swimming in the lido; playing football in the park; playing tennis; and in recent years' playing lawn bowls.

All this negativity by current day youths is one of the reasons why we have CCTV all over the place which imposes Big Brother on all of us. As you quite rightly point out these yobs are spoiling life for all of us; and as usual the innocent victims are the ones' who suffer.

Fri May 30

Hornfair Park

Yes, I forgot about the paddling pool. During the early 1950s one of my pals dashed into to paddling pool having forgot to remove his sandles and socks after changing into his swimming trunks. It was funny, but it could have happened to any of us.

I guess the bowls club is still there, eh! And what about the tennis courts? I understand that you are still there; and I hope you are well and healthy! With best wishes.

Safe as houses

We lived in Troughton Road for two years about five years ago and it was fine. Great transport links, nice little newsagent/corner shop, near big supermarkets. If you like sports and sign up for Greenwich Council gym membership, you can use the gym at Charlton Athletic when the footballer are not using it. On match day you can hear the roar of the crowd from Troughton Road - it's quite nice.

Good place to live

Charlton is a good place to live. Charlton is only 20 minutes by train to the City and West End. There are regular buses to near by North Greenwich Station on the Jubilee Line for Central London, Canary Wharf and Stratford. Blackheath Common and Greenwich Park are near by as is Blackheath Village and Greenwich Town Centre. There are local shops at Charlton Village, Blackheath Royal Standard, Bugsby Way and on the Greenwich Peninsula.

Hornfair Road is a very nice road in Charlton. The residents are nice. Charlton Village, Charlton and Hornfair parks are close by. Blackheath Common and Greenwich Park and Greenwich Town Centre are only a few minutes away by car. Nearby Charlton Village and Shooters Hill Road are well served by local bus routes including route 53/N53 to Whitehall (Horseguards) and routes 422 & 486 to North Greenwich Station.

Hornfair Road

Hornfair Road is a nice Road. Residents tend to be friendly but keep themselves to themselves. It is very close to Charlton Village shops and several bus services.

Hornfair Road and Surrounding roads are fine.

Most of the problems tend to be on or around the two council estates at Cherry Orchard and Springfield Grove.

Look at Greenwich rather than Charlton. Meridian Primary on Old Woolwich Road is fantastic. The teachers are known by their first names, it's really artistic and the head is amazing. He's been there for over 18 years and there's a real sense of community. My two are there, going into their second year with the school and we've actually decided not to relocate just so we can keep them there. We're fairly alternative and everyone (including the harder kids) have taken us in their stride.

Good news for route 161

From the 1st September 2007 route 161 Chislehurst to North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) via Greenwich Peninsula Sainsburys, Woolwich, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Eltham is to have its frequency increased to every 12 minutes (5 buses an hour) on Monday to Saturday evenings and all day on Sundays.

Hornfair Park

What is it like in Hornfair Park these days? During the 1950s and 1960s my pals and I grew up in this particular park. We used to go swimming in the Lido which was very popular; enjoy fun on the swings and roundabout in the children's playground; play soccer in the big field; and later played tennis when during our mid-teens; and about a decade ago I played Lawn Bowls against Charlton BC.

Thu Jul 05

Yeah, i think it's the entire line from london to Dartford, which involves Woolwich Arsenal. It better not be true - i don't fancy getting a bus then two tubes (at extra cost) to get to work!

can anyone confirm?

Thu Jul 05

Charlton House

Charlton House is Jacobean architecture with some history for the historians who are interested; and it makes a good photograph too. Charlton House is an attractive community centre with a library attached. The local community holds a variety of events and meetings therein. My Welsh Society used to have meetings before it had to fold because of declining support. I recommend that you actually visit Charlton House as the receptionist will provide a leaflet of the events taking place therein for those of us who are looking for an outlet.

Charlton House is on the 53 and 54 bus routes: maybe the 422 and 486 pass nearby, but you will have to check on that as I am not too sure.

reply to train rumour

hi i have also heard this rumour, but i must ad i have heard it is also affecting abbeywood< Thamesmead and woolwich arsenal train station? I was told the reason isn't because charlton has works being done but because woolwich arsenal is having rail line replaced. Dont know how long for but i know the works being done now at woolwich are causing major probs.

hope it is just a rumour, but who knows :(

Buses will operate every 30 minutes throughout the night every night of the week. Monday to Saturday evening and Sunday buses will also be increased to every 10 minutes.

Charlton Stadium

If you mean the Valley Ground home of Charlton Athletic FC it is easy. Exit Charlton railway station, cross directly across the road (Charlton Church Lane), turn right, then take the first left into Floyd Road. Continue along Floyd Road which takes you to the Main Entrance and the club shop which sells memorabilia and souverniers relating to 'The Addicks'. The whole walk should take between 5-8 minutes from exiting the station to the Valley Ground main entrance.

Tue Jun 12


Do you mean the Lido in Hornfair Park? Is it open again as I thought it was closed years' ago because it was derelict. And what are the admission prices these days?

During the late 1950s when I was still at school and lived nearby, three pals and I used to go swimming at the Lido at 6 am because there was free admission before 7 am. The water temperature was really cold, but we enjoyed ourselves. We then returned home for breakfast and then went to our senior school.

The last time I swam in the Lidol was during the mid-1970s and later moved out of the area. I would like to go swimming again at the Lido so I too would like to know if the pool is open.
