Neighbourhood tour continued:
This is the Assembly Halls (sort of community hall/function rooms, and used as a church on Sundays) in the "Village" - and I say "Village" to disabuse you of any notions of rusticity.
It would have been a village once, surrounded by fields and woodlands and no doubt considering itself some distance from the Big City, but now its a stretch of roads and shops, merging into all the other roads and shops and part of the greater London sprawl.
It has a church - the oldest parts of which are C17th -
and public toilets which have been closed for at least the last 15 years.
Newer houses and roads - some of them are post-war in-fill: filling in gaps left by bombed-out houses.
Some of them are more recent estates. Embellished as you can see in the style of 'south London eclectic'.
