1. Neil Armstrong

The first man on the moon is not normally associated with Kennington, but eagle-eyed top-deck travellers on the 159 should look closely at the London planes on Kennington Road. Neil Armstrong and his fellow cosmic travellers have been commemorated on small metal plaques attached to the trees at first-floor height. Originally there were 24, one for each Apollo astronaut, but now just 16 remain. In situ since at least 1990, their provenance was a mystery until a 2018 local newspaper article confirmed the British Interplanetary Society on nearby South Lambeth Road as behind their installation. Londonist has reported on the 'Astronaut Trees' previously, but before the mystery was solved. ...

It’s Christmas (in case you hadn’t noticed). Which means buying stuff (among other things). But it’s easy to forget sometimes that our city has an ever-expanding scene of unique independent craftspeople and makers churning out all kinds of amazing things. Knives hand-forged in Kennington. Hot sauce brewed up in Peckham. Sparkling wine made in Bethnal Green. Things you should now consider purchasing, because these things make fantastic presents and because the people who make them could really use your support right at the minute. ...

The tram that once ran underground through Central London and you can still spot the entrance - MyLondon

The tram that once ran underground through Central London and you can still spot the entrance - MyLondon

... An extension was later added to the line, with through services starting in 1908 and running from Highbury, further north than Angel, reaching Holborn, then branching out either south to Kennington or east to Tower Bridge.

It was quickly discovered that the Kennington service was not commercially viable, and so services were extended to Queens Road in Battersea instead, although the low bridge meant only single decker trams could run on that part of the line.

While it may seem strange to think about these now, double decker trams were brought in during the 1920s as a way of the subway remaining profitable.

As the years went on, routes were changed and extended across the tramway network. By 1931, the routes were Hackney to Wandsworth or Tooting, Highbury to Waterloo or Norbury, Archway to Kennington and Leyton to Westminster. ...

Parking spaces needed, please

Dear Companions

Do you have a parking space you’d be willing to rent out to a local small business?

Alton & Co is an accountancy firm with offices in my building on Kennington Lane, near the big Tesco

In keeping with government guidelines, staff are asked to avoid the use of public transport so are coming into work by private cars.  These stipulations look likely to be in place for some time so the firm is keen to find a longer-term solution and looking for 4-5 places where they could park on weekdays during office hours.

If you would be willing to offer a parking space to help them out, do please be in touch:

... Kennington had the second shot of the day saved by Lee Allen, and after some decent passing, Andy Somo’s volley went over the crossbar. ...

... Croydon’s goalkeeper Allen had a busy period in a short spell. First, a Kennington shot went wide of the post, then a chance from a corner was punched out, and the ball was caught after the next corner. ...

... Then in the 18th minute, the ball was headed out and found its way to Gary Lockyer who found a gap and his shot went past Allen. After a couple of saves from Allen, Kennington scored again on 37 minutes to double their lead. ...

... Kennington tried to put pressure on Croydon, only for the defence to block their efforts and for Allen to make some smart stops, including a great dive after a Kennington cross. ...
