Deptford in the Guardian

Deptford was featured in the Saturday Guardian's 'let's move to' series. If you missed the printed version, you can read it online here.

If anyone knows where the photograph was taken from, do share! Martin Godwin seems to have gone to very ordinary lengths to get a photo of the Evelyn estate tower blocks - at least I assume that's what he was trying to do. Or perhaps he really couldn't bear to set foot in Deptford so he peeped out of a neighbour's window in New Cross or Surrey Quays.

Focusing on the 'arty' side of Deptford as a reason why we should move here, it totally fails to mention the market and moans that you have to drag up the hill to Blackheath for a blade of grass.

Their Greenwich piece got a slagging, and this Deptford one isn't much better either... what a crap load of cliches.

Martin Goodwin's pictures always seem to be of the most uninteresting part of urban areas - the greenwich one was also a complete nonsense...

Wow. The research that must have gone into the piece must have been second to none. Or none. Space-filler journalism at its very best/worst.
