Named and Shamed

Named and Shamed


Squalid roads, buildings and locations in Croydon named and shamed.

I am not the only one who feels that building an arena in Dingwall Road is a bad idea (see earlier posts). Here is an extract of an email I received yesterday:

"...However, ‘arena’ conjures up pop concerts and over-excited
youngsters pouring out onto the street afterwards to fight, drink, take drugs,
and vomit. Mm, not so sure about that. On second thoughts, maybe Dingwall Road
is better left as it is: it somehow DOES have a certain decaying charm, if you
see what I mean. …And it would be a shame if the Warehouse Theatre building were
demolished: it’s one of the few older structures with any sort of character in
the whole area...."
