Northcote Village?

Postby Allesley » Wed Jan 29, 2020 11:13 pm

Does the area around Northcote Road need a (new) name?

What’s the best way to refer to it when speaking with Londoners from elsewhere: ‘between the commons’, south of Clapham junction, between Clapham and Wandsworth, near the Northcote road, South of Battersea...

I wondered whether it would be simpler to coin the phrase ‘Northcote Village’. The area has something of a village feel (by London standards) and it would be a lot easier to make reference to it as it’s own place rather than by reference to neighbouring areas.

Just a thought!

Hi Allesley. I think that it was coined Nappy Valley many moons ago - probably the inspiration for this site  ;)

True but you can’t put that on Google maps can you?

"Northcote Village"???

Sounds pure Estate-Agentese to me

Estate Agents have been kicking around (with their pointy shoes)  "Abbeville Village" for decades but it's seldom, if ever,  referred to as such outside of their branches!  😆
