Oh, look. Deptford is the new Left Bank:

First Came The Artists…

I’d have a whole lot more confidence in the story, though, if it didn’t contain this line:

Hales Gallery, a go-ahead contemporary art venue, run by Paul Hedge and Paul Maslin (where celebrated Brit-artists Jake & Dinos Chapman launched their first show) and the Museum of Installation, dedicated to installation art, are also putting Deptford on London’s cultural map.

That’ll be the Hales Gallery that moved out and headed for the East End six months ago, right? Oh, dear.

And, now I think about it, what about that standfirst?

A creative revolution is taking place in Deptford, Del Boy’s old stamping ground in south London

Now, wasn’t Peckham Del Boy’s preferred haunt? Never mind. Who expects research in a puff piece about £360,000 apartments in a converted mill?

Students of property marketing might also like to note this development’s web address:
