Sydenham Park Road

Hi - I'm considering moving in to a property in this area - I went for a few walks and the area seems ok. Is it safe at night? There's a pedestrian railway bridge at the end of the road that looks potentially unsafe at night or am I just being paranoid?

large room, workshop or basement needed in Forest Hill


I need a room which can be dedicated 7/7 to give music tuition in Forest Hill. I need it... now.

The ideal would be a basement with a large room or a couple of rooms to make sound proofing easy.

This is a serious request, I have been teaching here for 8 years but I have to move out out of my studio due to new ownership of the building where it is currently located.

It does not have to be a basement, it can be any space which is large and secure enough.

Please email me at

Moving to Marler Road, Forest Hill SE23

I'm buying a flat in Marler Road SE23 and wondered what people's view was of this end of the area. Last time I was there I saw a gang of about 10 teenagers outside a shop on Stanstead Rd and I got all nervous. I realise Marler Rd is closer to Catford which is less nice. I do really like the area in general but I'm worried if I feel unsafe I'll regret buying the house. I currently live in Islington which isn't without its problems - oh no - but it feels much busier and a slightly more cosmopolitan crowd. Having said that I can't afford to live there!

Not a lot of gym action going on around here, unfortunately. Main options are: Tower Hamlets gym (near DKH Sainsburys), Fitness First Sydenham Hill, Southwark Leisure 'Fusion Lifestyle', and some smaller specialist centres dotted around, like the physio place on Lordship Lane, for e.g. Apparently there is a gym opening up by the station, where the McDonalds used to be. You can see them doing the shopfit now, but I don't know if it is still on track to being a gym?? watch that space, I guess!

Is Sunderland Road safe/a good road?


I'm looking at moving to a place towards the South Circular end of Sunderland Road. Would anyone be kind enough to tell me if this is a safe area - particularly at night? I know there is a big council block further up Sunderland Road - of course this doesn't make the area bad, but I don't know if it's a decent block or one which attracts trouble etc (as can sometimes be the case with gangs etc).

Any help would be much appreciated!
