As I mentioned in a previous post the Western side of Camberwell is a moveable feature with what some call Camberwell, others argue is Brixton, Oval, Herne Hill, Putney or wherever (or on reflection maybe not Putney but you get my drift). I guess Brixton has more street‐cred and greater recognition than Camberwell.
The Urban75 website is an excellent source of information, reviews, discussion and much much else for all things Brixton (and surrounding area).
Occasionally Urban 75 features reports from Camberwell such as the excellent feature on the lost pubs of the area which documents several of the ‘characterful’ and rather intimidating pubs of Coldharbour Lane that I remember cycling by when I first lived in Brixton in 1998.
Recently it featured Ruskin Park and I was intrigued by another report that they carried on the ‘Camberwell Submarine’ which is an architectural feature I have passed on several occasions and wondered what it was. It is interesting that they consider Akerman Road, SW9 to be in Camberwell.
Another site I have recently discovered is the Lambeth Landmark which features old photos from Lambeth’s archives — by selecting Brixton North or Loughborough Junction from the places menu you can access several from the SE5 Camberwell area.
