Deptford: Great for those who love green spaces

Deptford: Great for those who love green spacesLocated in South-East London in the borough of Lewisham, Deptford is located on the south bank of the River Thames, is 4.7 miles west-north-west of Charing Cross and is in the postcode district SE8.

Upmystreet.com's neighbourhood snapshot of the centre of Barnes states that the average family income of those living in the area is low to medium, but the interest in current affairs is high.

A very low percentage of the houses are owned by those with a mortgage, which means that there is plenty of property to rent in the area.

Of those living in the area, a medium proportion of the people are educated to a degree level and a similar number is couples with children.

Around 70 per cent of the properties in the area are purpose-built blocks of flats inhabited by young, multi-ethnic families.

Transport

Car ownership among the people living in the area is low, so residents rely heavily on public transport.

Deptford is served by both National Rail and the Docklands Light Railway, with the former passing through Deptford railway station, St Johns and New Cross, and the latter servicing Deptford Bridge and Elverson Road.

The nearest London Underground Station to the centre of Deptford is New Cross Gate, which is one mile away.

Three bus routes run through Barnes during the day and at night, including the 188 from North Greenwich Station to Russell Square Station.

Schools

There are five primary schools in and around the Deptford area; these are Grinling Gibbons Primary School, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Tidemill Primary School, Kings Kids Christian School and Deptford Park Primary School.

Of the pupils at Grinling Gibbons Primary School who took their Key Stage 2 Sats tests last year, some 95 per cent achieved a Level 4 and above in English, 90 per cent in maths and 100 per cent in science.

There are also a number of great secondary schools near to Deptford, including St Ursula's Convent School.

In 2010, 80 per cent of Year 11 pupils at this school achieved five A* - C grades in their GCSE exams, which is much higher than the national average of 51 per cent.

Things to do

Those living in property to rent in Deptford will never be short of things to do.

A vibrant market takes place three times a week in Deptford, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, offering bargain hunters everything from clothes and food to plants and electronics.

Arts lovers are also catered for as the area is home to the Albany Theatre, which originally opened as a charity designed to raise money for deprived people living in Deptford.

Those who pay a visit to nearby Creekside will come across the Laban Dance Centre and the Art in Perpetuity Trust gallery and studio space.

There are a great number of green spaces in Deptford, including Brookmill Park, Deptford Park, Ferranti Park, Pepys Park and Sayes Court Park.

People who prefer to head out during the evenings will enjoy the many pubs and bars that the area has to offer, such as the Bird's Nest, which hosts live music, film and arts performances.

Overall, Deptford is a great place for those looking for cheap property to rent in the London borough of Lewisham.

It has something to offer most people, regardless of what their hobbies and pastimes are.
