Welcome to the new blog. This is one person’s view on Thamesmead.
One of the golden rules of writing is to write about what you know. While I’m no expert on Thamesmead and Abbey Wood, I do live here. I discovered the area when I was looking to move to London and I started to do as much research as I could about the area. It was a habit I never really dropped, and I look out for more and more information about the area’s history and future on a daily basis. Since I’m doing this anyway it makes sense that if I want to keep a blog going, then that’s the ideal subject.
Read along as I write up my various musings and look at what happens to the area as the long promised Crossrail project takes shape. Will the whole area be rejuventated and grow? Or are we forever relegated to being “that place where A Clockwork Orange got filmed”?
