    50 London Fire Brigade firefighters struggled to get a blaze in a derelict house by a golf course in Catford today. The Brigade's Twitter feed confirms it is now under control.

    why o why do I always seem to be doing something else when there are things like this happening, I have my own audio blog and am always looking for local news as it happens

    I hope it wasn't the lovely building next to the Manor House at Beckenham Place Park - I went there the other day and thought it was an absolute tragedy that it was empty - could make fantastic artists workshops or live/work units and the garden could be great community allotments - but instead it was all derelict and sorry for itself.

    I think it probably is that building, it is the only Manor house in the park??? I think.

    Yes, it was the Grade II listed (I think) stables next to the Manor House - neglected shamefully for decades by the Council and now burned out. The Friends of Beckenham Place Park (or at least according to one of their regular volunteers who I know quite well) are equally gutted about it.

    You can add me to the list of people who are gutted about it. I've been past a few times and always thought it was a crying shame that it was derelict.
