There's a for sale sign on a house in that bottom picture. Thats what
I call wishful thinking even in London!

It has a boarded-up downstairs window, and its front door is inside the
work area. Network Rail will have bought that house along with the one
they've demolished, and when they've finished patching up the 'join'
will make it available for occupation.


It beats having a portacabin as an office!


I imagine that it also eliminates the need for a portaloo. The old station
building is still intact, too, and seems to be being used as a
construction base for the moment.


People selling property can be remarkably clueless about things like that.

During our 18 month search for a new (to us) house that ended in September
1982 we had an offer accepted on a pair of terraced houses which had been
the transport office for the next door former brewery, latterly distribution
depot, which had been bought by developers and is now a small housing estate.

It had lots of loos on the ground floor across the two houses which we
planned to convert as a kitchen/diner, as you would. Shortly afterwards we
were gazumped by the developers who realised how much they could save while
carrying out the development. Dumb of the brewery or their agents not to
realise that.
