The Greenspaces Map

Greenspaces is BC's attempt to document and map the local bits of public greenery. The Greenspaces map is now live on Google Maps. Most of the markers now have links through to the corresponding articles on Brockley Central, to provide images and comment.

There are a few glaring gaps on the map - we're adding to it as we go along.

A few more to the south can be seen on https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=201955415349702756987.0004a7f0453ac3ca8faff&msa=0&ll=51.442881,-0.048923&spn=0.071687,0.117931

Cheers Michael, some good suggestions there, which I will hopefully get round to featuring one day.

This is sort of greenspaces related. Has anyone seen any Sloe berries around? I need a couple more. Any tips greatly received.

Thames path in Thamesmead, near the golf centre. Loads of sloes. Roundabout at the M2 junction with the A249, more sloes on the verge. Probably full of toxic stuff though!.

It's a pity that Brockley Hill Park is inaccessible to those living around it. Questionable if this should be included in that case.

Or perhaps they could be encouraged to have an open day? There is plenty of neighbourhood interest into this lost idyll.

Why not add Manor House Gardens? Its a really lovely park, and closer than some of the others.

Yes, it's lovely. Added a marker and will add a review when I can.

Drive down the A2 to Cooling. Plenty, plenty on the long walk to the Thames shore. Leave us one or two. We'll be there in a week.

Have you seen the Peckham and Nunhead green spaces map we put together last year?

Hello Green enthusiasts. I'm interested in creating a new Brockley community garden (or perhaps allotments) on a patch of land owned by the GLA at the bottom of Tressillian Road. The land has lots of well established trees and plenty of space to create a really beautiful garden which would turn this site from an eyesore into a wonderful resource for community groups. Any hints, tips or offers to join in?
