The Tube Map Is Full Of Lies | Londonist
... Looking at this, you might assume that Elephant & Castle is much closer to Kennington than to Borough station — maybe about four times closer. In fact, Elephant is around 100 metres closer to Borough than it is to Kennington. Why's that, then? You'll notice E&C is on the borders of fare zones 1 and 2. If the station were shifted closer to Borough, then the fare boundary would also have to move. That'd upset the parallel with another border station, Vauxhall, to the west. The best compromise is to place the Elephant within kissing distance of Kennington. ...

ES Views: Building more homes is the solution to the housing crisis | London Evening Standard
... There are so many new tower blocks going up around where I live in Kennington and along the South Bank. I rarely see anybody going in and out of them and no real sense of community is being developed.
These properties are too expensive for most south London residents. It also clear that some new developments are so shoddy and poorly constructed that there is no way they will last a lifetime. These developments may bring in extra revenue for local councils, but what happened to the authorities making decisions that will be of benefit  to the people who actually vote  for them?
The whole housing market in London is largely broken. How can we fix it?

🌼📚Spring cleaning your 📚bookshelves???

Dear Companions
We have another stack of 📚books here to sell on-line in aid of the Friends of the Durning Library so now would be a good time to receive any that you would like to donate...
They can either be delivered here to my flat [easier for me, of course] or dropped off at the library, in the blue bin as usual.
I anticipate processing batches of books, CDs, DVDs, etc half yearly, so you may want to have your clear-out sooner rather than later.
Very many thanks

  • 19/28 The Three Stags, Kennington

    The kitchen operates to a strong eco ethos at this local pub near Lambeth North station. This means that not only can you can be sure of the meat’s provenance, but that much of the veg is locally sourced too – including some grown on a plot next door.
    If you’re dining in a group, try and reserve the semi-private Chaplin’s Corner at the far end of the pub, so-called because this is where Charlie Chaplin’s father used to sit drinking.
    Round off your roast with a pudding featuring honey made from the pub’s own rooftop hive.
