Letter: Lovely Lewisham

Click to follow
Sir: I was sorry to read John Walsh's description of Lewisham as the "seriously nasty end of south London" (Comment, 4 February). The many thousands of Londoners who live, work or study here would disagree.

The area is fast becoming one of the safest and most popular places to live in London. You don't have to take my word for it. The Independent agrees! Last December, under the headline "No longer so cheap but increasingly cheerful" you report: "Lewisham has arrived ... in Lewisham, properties are sold within hours".

Perhaps John Walsh would appreciate a tour of what The Independent calls "Lewisham's forgotten treasures". I would be happy to show him round.
