So I have been given the controls of the mighty Camberwellonline blog and what an honour and privilege it is, I hope over the next two weeks or so to share some of my pearls of wisdom about living in Camberwell.
I was born in Brighton but moved to Wiltshire aged four so consider myself a West country boy. After university in Canterbury I moved to London almost 10 years ago and after an initial brief flirtation with Golders Green and West Hampstead I am now firmly established in the South. I have lived in Clapham, Brixton, Streatham, Stockwell, Camberwell, Vauxhall (the joy of assured shorthold tenancies!) and last July, doing my bit to further the property owning democracy moved to Camberwell courtesy of Winkworths. I am now living in the ‘Minet Conservation area’ near to Myatts Fields which according to some is not in Camberwell (its ‘Oval’, ‘North Brixton’ or ‘Loughborough Junction’). Apart from the previous spell in Camberwell (in Canning Cross about 10 metres from the George Canning pub) I have lived in Lambeth all the time Ive been in the South so its from that slightly different perspective that I offer my postings.
