I'm a sucker for London history, so I was pleased to hear about a new documentary which looks at the story surrounding the Old Kent Road. The famous street runs from the Bricklayers Arms roundabout near Great Dover St down to the edge of New Cross, serving as an artery to much of south east London.
It skirts past the very underrated Burgess Park, hosts the second best Jerk place in London (sorry Smokey Jerky, Thornton Heath's Tasty Jerk is still better), a bloomin' tank, and few websites have labelled the surrounding neighbourhoods as 'London's coolest new spots!' or something equally facile - so that's good!
But that's my minimal view of it and it's probably waaaayyy off the mark. Luckily, director Ian Parkin has dedicated a wealth of knowledge to a new documentary he's made called The Old Kent Road. There's going to be a screening of it at the Deptford Cinema on February 20, and you should go.
