Unlike Brockley

Back of Guardian Guide 27 March - 2 April

I was surprised to see Brockley mentioned in an advert for iPhone apps on the back cover of the Guardian Guide.  Here’s the relevant part:

Kensington ~ Brockley!

The interesting point is that the parallelism between Brockley and Kensington surely means that people are expected to know that Brockley exists, and perhaps even where it is.

Brockley Palace?  Brockley Gore?  Imperialist College of Science and Technology, South Brockley?  A Far Cry from Brockley, by Muriel Spark?

The possibilities are endless…
