Very useful transport links- several buses go from just by my road in particular

I would think it’s not as safe as I first expected having moved from an averagely safe area. It’s semi trendy but there is a rough edge to it I am now more aware of due to being in the area during covid. The house I live in is lovely but the area is a bit more unsafe than I would like, but fear the gentrification I would like to see, will be slow to come as it has developed a lot as it is.

Transport

Very useful transport links- several buses go from just by my road in particular. Have both the Victoria and northern line at my avail. HEAVY congestion on the northern line makes it virtually impossible to get on at peak times, having to use the Stockwell interchange to get consider getting on it.

Community

Anti social behaviour can be rife at the top of my road, but has died back somewhat since police raids on the 12 or so men smoking weed/selling drugs. It’s also one of the few through roads that joins onto a bigger road so there is a lot of traffic. Being located so close to this is one of the single biggest drawbacks of living here. Street is a mixture of younger renters and people who own. 50/50 split of full houses vs those converted into flats.

Amenities

I’m equidistant between two hubs of sout London so have quite a lot of functional shops in one high street and a lot of bars and restaurants on the other. The practical high street isn’t as nice to visit but offers more in terms of clothes/home furnishings, the other has less function but more variety of appealing restaurants and bars instead.

heavily regenerated over the years,

It is an area that has been heavily regenerated over the years, but at the same time is still honourable to its history.

Transport

Equidistant from Brixton underground station and Clapham North ( Victoria line and northern ) - extremely well connected.

Community

Bin collections are weekly and efficient, social behaviour is not an issue, nor traffic as we are not on a main road. Mix of families and young professionals. I think mostly renters but can’t be sure.

Amenities

The local shops are amazing, it’s a mix of independent shops that have stood for years and newer trendy places too. The music venues in the area definitely make it - Brixton Academy, The Effra, Phonox etc.

The greatest stacion that you can take to transports around central london its brixton stacion apart from that the buses are quite good and on point if you miss one another will be there in about 5 mins or less

Community

Theres great atmosphere around but theres quite a few areas that you can see bad thing going on and people too drunk aswell after certain time its better not to pas around there

Amenities

Brixton its full different shop and butchers where you can find any type of food and spices also a bunch of bars where pints are quite cheap and again jamaican restaurants are the best
