Yes, I well remember Cutler's, otherwise known as "penny, ha'penny, tuppence" which referred to his sweetie box as he pointed out the different values of the contents. Used to wind him up by asking "how much is that one" which resulted in him repeating the "penny ha'penny tuppence" line while getting more and more aeriated at each new request. Used to love the little black aniseed flavour gums.

34 is a lovely little house. It lies back off the street with 3 others. It was owned by a man with a Eastern European name in 1970ish and rented out as the bedroom doors had Yale locks. Many of the houses were owned and neglected by one landlord. As the people aged they got sold. It was 2 up 2 down with a scullery with a copper and outside loo. A little box room above the scullery. The garden is a nice size and was looked after and enjoyed. When my relatives bought 34 the communal path was mud, daylight could be seen through the roof and there was a single cold tap. When doing the garden they dug up an Anderson shelter and sadly a mummified black dog!

nunhead to kent

back before family holidays abroad,in the 1950s there was not a lot of money about ,to take the kids and family on holidays,so in the six weeks school holidays,what did most families do ,they packed up there pots,pans,bedding ect,and shoved it all on trucks,vans,lorries,trains, or any form of transport they could find,and head off from nunhead, Peckham,and all over London,to the hop fields of kent,it was a great way to have a break from London,and earn some bear money,on the hop farms the farmer provided tin huts, and work to pick his hops,all the family mucked in pulling the vines down, and picking off the hop heads into the canvas troffs,each bushel picked,was money for the family,food was cooked on open fires ,metal grids and little ovens,you wore your cloathes for a week,till sunday,that was wash day,and washed your self in a bowl,or small iron bath,the kids went scrumping for fruit, and the parents went to the local boozer,,there were people from all over London having sing songs

Nunhead in the 1940s

Hi, I'm looking to trace any info on my grandmother who lived in Nunhead from 1948 onwards . She lived there most of her married life so I figure someone would know her and her husband / family. Her name was Harriet Rose Banks. She lived at 34 Nunhead Grove in 1948 with her husband James banks. They did have 2 kids in the 1950's named Jennifer and Ray. Any info on my grandmother at the time would be most appreciated. I'm collecting a family history from my mothers side of the family. Contact me at

nunhead

The council wasn't very fair to some of the long term shop tenants a few years ago, doubling the rent and wanting fully repairing leases (£60k just for repairs!) then having scared them off, they sold the properties (having refused over the years, to sell to the existing tenants or do the necessary repairs !!)

Hi,

I have been searching online for bits and bobs related to my family history and when I came across this, the name's rang a bell in my head. My Nan was best friends with your sister Kathy as she lived on Barset Rd too, along with my grandad and all their children (my mother included). They later moved to Beer & Wine, which is the home I remember my grandparents in and remember Kathy from when she would come round to do my Nan's hair still in the 90s!

My Nan was called Alice Harrison (Hodges) married to Donald and their children were: Jean, Pat, Eileen, Richard, Christine (My mum) and Martin.

No you haven't chosen the wrong side - its nice and quiet in Borland Rd. There were loads of "local" shops in Cheltenham Rd, including a post office, a green grocers and a butchers, a dairy ... but everyone headed off to sainsburys and they closed. If you want shops, pubs, etc ... perhaps forest hill rd is nearer.

Evelina Rd used to be really great 30 years ago ... there was a laundry, a nicer bakers, 2 greengrocers, an offlicence, a petshop, a cobblers, a recordshop, a tea rooms, an aquarium shop, antiques centre, clock shop, photographers, an optician, gift shop ... etc. To add to the village feel .. there was also an old horsetrough that the council removed and replaced with an ugly recycling bank.

nunhead the area

Hi,

Kitto Rd is great. Lovely parks,no chavs or few gangsters. The rail station is exactly 7 minutes away from the station.

Nice public school down the road. The hill view is brilliant,quite leafy surrounds. Two shops not to far away. Great community activities in the newly opened cafe opposite the park.

Wrong side of Nunhead?

I am moving from East Dulwich to Nunhead but I understand that all the life is happening on Nunhead Lane or Evelina Road, while I will be in Borland Road...

Apart from the Ivy House, is there anything else around there?

I noticed all the shops on Cheltentham Rd that were closed over the weekend, seem to be shut also during the week. Not a chemist neither?

I really like the flat and being near the park but need some advice also on safety in that particular area. Did I choose the wrong side of Nunhead?

Ive also had trouble with Jeff Latouche

I asked him to repair my roof. The first problem was to get him to send me a quote - I had to pester him for umpteen times. The next problem was getting him to turn up. He was completely unreliable - on several occasions he said he would be coming and then didn't turn up, no phone call, nothing. When he did come he skimped the work, was hardly there and the price was exorbitant for the amount of work. AVOID

Theres another great pub closer to you on Dennetts Road

There's another great pub closer to you on Dennett's Road called 'The Telegraph at the Earl of Derby'. You can easily walk to Queens Road or Brockley stations, which are getting the East London Line in May, plus Nunhead station which is on the Thameslink and also goes to Victoria. Night buses run down the old kent road, but you'll have to walk from New Cross - there are a few - the N172 springs to mind. You have got Telegraph Hill park nearby with sweeping views of the capital. Nunhead high street has 2 butchers; a great bakers and a first class fishmonger. Cheaper than East Dulwich and minus the pretension.
