We took the kids to the new playground opposite the Horniman gardens today. It's fab - a massive sandpit, with loads of really fun adventure playground type things in it, plus a cafe. I got talking to someone there who informed me that the site used to be a plague pit - though, a quick search on Google suggests that is rumour rather than fact! Whatever it might once have been, it's now another great addition to a wide range of activities for kids in our area. I really do love South East London.
