Homecoming - An article about Forest Hill / Honor Oak


An interesting moving read about growing up in SE23…

"I’m convinced there’s something magical about Forest Hill, even if its spells are often ambivalent.

The steepness of the roads and impossible angles of light thrown out by an autumn sun. Bouts of appalled silence, yards from the hell of the South Circular. An overabundance of green space and foliage, which can feel like comfort or the harbinger of neuroses, depending on your mood."


How beautifully written. And such a poignant story


It’s a beautiful piece af writing. It doesn’t seek to flatter and feels wholly authentic.
