Post by Leslie Butler: Neate Street, SE5

My Uncle (James Burgess and his wife Lil) used to live on Neate street, we used to come up from Croydon to visit (50 years ago) and play on the canal bridge that was about six houses along, the canal used to be at the back of his house. Used to feel like we were in a Dickens film Oliver Twist. The bridge is still there but nothing underneath as the canal has long gone and so have the houses that used to be on Neate street.
