Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

I am sitting uncomfortably on the fence on this one. On one hand the Planning Inspector has said each case should be judged on its own merits, and CPP should not set a precedent. However, I think it does create a precedent. How can it not do ? Not only does this put a lot of other (national) park sp...

Re: The Woodman

As others have stated (including myself), the exterior is a vast improvement. The issue is not following due process. I bet if W&S had retained that disgusting orange exterior paint, there would be uproar. If they followed the Planning Process there would be no issue. But we just don't know what the...

Re: The Woodman

This is one picture i have of the interior and furnishings. (why do i have this stuif ?). Probably around 2009 and taken in the evening on a quiet night. The interior was mostly a lovely dark aged wood. Absolutely gorgeous. Who knows what it is now,. . . . . http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7217/717385...

Re: The Woodman

the windows, and frames and metalwork seem to be the original, just with some silver backing. When you look up close you can see it's not really a professional job at all. In fact it looks exceedingly poor when up close. Then again, it could be just a temporary measure to deter break-ins http://farm...

Re: a New Historical Walk through Sydenham Woods proposed

A couple of trees have come down in recent years. March 2009 was the first that i saw in Cox's Walk near to the bridge. Probably the biggest tree in the woods, the diameter was around a metre (see photograph) http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8024/7354677500_382b09b9ec.jpg Another big tree came down acr...

Andy Coulson now formally charged with perjury. I have to admit I thought AC was made of teflon. I wonder if anything else is going to come back to haunt him ?

Jubilee Proms CP Park 24th June

Music and fireworks in Crystal Palace Park on 24th June. I was hoping this would be a free event, but tickets cost around £30.

Re: a New Historical Walk through Sydenham Woods proposed

that's around 22 people. A few may drop-out at the last moment, but that's a good working number and still leaves room for more.

You don't have to 'book' a place,..you can still just turn up if it transpires people are unexpectedly free that morning.
