Favourite Building
  • Longleat mews, former paper mills
  • meon court
  • the priory buildings orpington library (older piece not the build on)
  • The old Priory buildings. Shame they demolished part of it in the 1950s to build the library. There are plans to remove the library car park and restore the picturesque gravel drive.
  • The war memorial
  • some of the estates have this sortof totally urban run down feel to them which is pretty cool, the st. olaves buildings are pretty pleasing to the eye as well.
  • the priory museum....... why do bromley spend my council tax on keeping this place open............. wow a milk bottom found on a door step in 1965..... go there and see 4 yourself... thank god its free.
  • The library by Priory gardens
  • The library by Priory gardens
  • The library by Priory gardens
  • The library by Priory gardens
  • Walnuts Leisure Centre (just for the stairs and walls to grind)
  • With locals, the Job Centre seems popular.
  • u mean those grimey pidgeon infested concret things are BUILDINGS?
  • Kent Comics
  • Waitrose - grind + wallride the place then buy food from there when hungry
  • actually theres nothing I like to look at in orpington
  • DHSS office
  • there all crap part from macdonalds
  • The priory Museaum
  • The weird little hut thing on Tubbenden Lane.. what is that thing? It's by the mark saying "15 miles to London Bridge" by the way.
  • The priory is sweet, but watch out for used syringes and rubbers when walking your little'uns through the park.
  • my home because its sometimes the only place you can cry,play games,and do almost any thing without geting the old hoverbags going at you.
  • The view of the high street in my rear view mirror.
  • There is nothing of architectural worth in Orpington. The multi-storey does actually provide quite a cool vista, and if it wasn't for the egg-throwing pikeys, might be quite a decent hang out.
  • orpington train station
  • The 'wigwam' ccatholic church of 'Holy Innocents. I think they got the plans from Ikea.
  • Yep the Bakery is definatly good its that early morning baking smell that really wakes you up even if you havn't been to bed yet.
  • Orpington Library
  • Tudor Cars Mini-Can office by the station. I know I'm goning to get home quickly, fairly cheaply and without having to run the gauntlet of nasty street trash.
  • A bullet proof one preferably
  • M&S
  • too many to mention - orpington is a beutifully rich example of top quliyy architecture
  • None, they're all completely disgusting. Downe primary school in Downe village is pretty.
  • All the offices by the market have an excellent roof section for those times that you feel like reinacting the Matrix.
  • All saints church is nice and very old - also the Priory (which as never a priory but a stately home). Goddington House is very attractive although you can only peer through bushes at it cos its private. I used to love that beautiful old sweetshop which still had dark wood shelves and glass counters and sold sweets in quartres. I can't believe it wasn't protected.
  • Probably The Harvest Moon. Very nice pub, and cheap, too! Just like being at a Students' Union bar...
  • Charterhouse School. Now demolished but should have been preserved as a shrine to the indifference of the local education authority/teachers to give it's charges a decent education and send them into the world with a toolbag of skills to realise their potential and have rewarding and fulfilling careers and not to be seen as the next generation of postman/dustmen/milkmen. Rot in hell you bastards,
  • My house. Okay... the Saphron then. Yum.
  • The bakery on Sevenoaks Way- it's not much to look at, but the smell is great!
