Hi Everyone

Myself and my girlfriend have recently bought in ED, we love the area but looking to tap into a bit of local knowledge. We live on Darrell Road, at the bottom near Upland are a block of flats (Flats 1-8 - 10/12 Upland road)access via a blue door.

We find people are hanging around out side until very late at night, using bad language and generally quite unusual behvaiour with people shouting in all directions in an empty round which is a bit disturbing at night. Does anyone know the purpose of these flats (I've heard a few stories) or any rational to the slightly unusual behaviour? It's not a major issue but a little unsettling with my girlfriend coming home late at night and people hanging around acting very erratically.

Thanks

Hi Hendrix, is it to do with the East Dulwich Hotel which is the subject of this thread?

Hope things settle down for you soon.

Thanks for the reply Goodliz, its not the hotel, its a flat complex right at the bottom of Darrell road where it intersects with Upland Road. We've spoken to the neighbours on the street and got a little history, I don't want to cause any animosity its just the regularity of the noise, bad language and being approached by people most days, which if I'm honest is pretty incoherent and a little unusual. I know it's not an easy one for the forum to advise on as its specific to one flat on our road but does concern me a little with ladies walking alone at night.

Thanks

The flats on the corner of Upland and Darrell were originally a mental health day centre run by SLAM called Number 10. As a money saving exercise, SLAM closed this centre many years ago and sold off to a private developer who by building an extension on, turned it into several flats. Most of the original attendees of No 10, have died or moved on so highly unlikely the current anti social behaviourists have anything to do with the ex centre.

I looked on the crime map - nothing seems to be reported in that area.

Have a chat with the local Safer Neighbourhood Team. Think you can also email them.
