South Norwood Portland Rd Shops  

I lived, with my parents, in SN between late 1960s and late 1980s. Mum is still with us but now has dementia. She likes to talk about our time there and the shops we used to go to. Can anyone remember the name of the following shops on Portland Rd:
- the men's shop (opp side of road to petrol station) that was like Mr Benn's
- the large women's access shop that had long counters, drawers behind an plenty of staff to serve you
- the crockery shop that used to stack its wares on the pavement (I think it was where New City is now)
- the small furniture shop - towards St Luke's

There are plenty of others I can think about but I won't bore everyone!!

South Norwood Looking for a room  

Hi there, I am looking for a room or a one bedroom apartment for me and my 9 month old daughter. Rent starting from 1st September, long term, budget of £700. If anyone could help I would really appreciate it as it's difficult to find accommodation that is child friendly and welcoming to single mums.

South Norwood Randall Slade  

Does anyone remember Randal Slade, the grocers at the end of Woodside Avenue? Also, Busby's, a small grocers half way down Woodside Avenue? I was born at number 54 in 1954 and can remember the latter shop (now returned to residential use) as a small child.

I believe Randal Slade had a bakery at the end of the avenue too, and as a child, I remember getting free 'rejects' of Palm Toffee from there on a Sunday morning.  Mail-me

South Norwood Randall Slade  

Randall Slade was the trading name of a group of shops at the end of Woodside Avenue and Cobden Road. I can remember a butchers, drapers, grocers, bakers (with its own bakery behind), greengrocers, garage and a chapel. All of his plus several houses belonged to a religious group of people called Coklers.
I lived, as child, in the Spread Eagle on the corner of Cobden Road.

South Norwood Night bus?  

I'm thinking about moving to South Norwood given the reasonably priced homes! I dont know much about the area but it looks like there are plenty of shops and green spaces, which is what I am looking for. I'm a single girl so transport is quite important. During the day it looks great but I can't work out how you get there during the night I.e. early hours of the morning? I like to go out after work and don't want to be stranded after midnight....

South Norwood Moving to Tennison Road.  

Hi Guys,

My husband and I are moving to the new apartments coming up on Tennison Road. Right now we are renting in Uxbridge and the new apartments there are just in our budget to buy.

We took a short stroll down the high street but couldn't really assess the area in the short period.

I work long hours and get home late so how safe would it be to walk back home from the station at around 9.30 pm? Could you guys please share your experiences so I have enough peace of mind!

South Norwood RADIO SHOP PORTLAND ROAD  

Do you have any idea of when this would have been? My parents lived with Mums parents in Albert Road when I was a child and I have a payment card for 2 bakealite radios around the early 1950's. I think the card was headed Radio Rentals in Portland Road.

South Norwood Response to selhurst park  

Hi,

It is a safe walk to the station, very close to the station norwood junction that is. The only thing is that during the season fans will be present but the fans are super friendly and never drunk just annoying with the massive crowd but that's not often only during the season. Not a rough area, they have great schools amazing schools etc...but you could try a better area I do like black horse lane just 10mins away towards crotons Aren tram stop. That is nice and quite.

South Norwood Arena & Woodside  

Arena and Woodside is very safe with excellent tram and transport links . It is quiet with the country park close by. I am amazed at how easy it is to get to Tesco by tram.
We moved here in May and so far very happy

South Norwood Moving to South Norwood 2011  

Hi. I'm in early 30s looking to buy a flat and having been looking at crystal palace area but it's too expensive (and not keen on the one way traffic). I've lived for the last 5 yrs in Colliers Wood /Tooting and have been happy and felt relatively safe in these areas. South Norwood looks cheap in comparison and I'm wondering what it's like in 2011.. I visited once during the day on a week day and it seemed fine and quite friendly and quiet. Not sure why it's so cheap? Is it relatively ok at night? Is the area getting better/worse?  Mail-me

South Norwood South Norwood...  

I tend to go out in Crystal Palace or Norwood Junction...but a few pubs to go to include Ivory Coast, Joiners Arms and the Albert.....Other pubs Albion and Jolly Sailor have new owners and trying to up their game. The Indian at the begginning of Portland Road is really good....and very popular. The Thai Restuarant on Portland Road is good too. The bus to Crystal Palce runs every seven minutes and takes ten minutes....And there's lovely restaurants also in South Croydon.

South Norwood What are people moaning about Part 2  

South Norwood has good transport links and you can get into the main part of croydon very quickly. Correction, is there was any spelling mistakes, who cares what people read in any papers. London is a major international city and has the same people as any where else in the world. No place any one is trapped, maybe for the residents who say its gone down over maybe you should have been planning to find a place where your happy. As for others it is just find, not every street has the same type of people in South Norwood
