    Simon - i'd have a work with Alex Falk at mr cad - it's the sort of thing that he can probably help with - that's aside from the odd unfavourable web post that Alex's business garners plus of course Pete's earlier post regarding the dodginess of South Londoners per se

    still, fwiw, I've never been totally happy saaafph of the River

    Does Croydon count as South London?
    As an ex SW17 resident, albeit many decades ago, when the activities on Clapham Common were the most reported "crime", I take mild exception to jokes about south of Thames!

    Steven, thx - well - Croydon has 'CRO' postcodes, so that presumably excludes that borough from being part of the metropolis per se..............anyhow, apart from Battersea, South London pretty well leaves me wondering, all very low rise architecture and miles after miles of mundane flat lands............very mundane.......in fact incredibly mundane as well

    regards

    I understand that all the Balham equipment was taken over by Kingsview Optics who ( at least on their website) don't seem to exclude "small" jobs. May be a useful separation/coating facility for UK and EU?
