- builder wanted – North London
Brakes, we used Building Company London for recent work to our place (just round the corner, as you know). They were a decent price and the work on the whole was very good. I don’t know if I’d give them a 100% cast iron recommendation as we had a few issues with the new windows they put in, but generally they were ok. How’s that for an endorsement?!Posted 5 years ago
Rochey, I’m in Crouch End.
Brakes; we’re neighbours!
The builders of choice round here seem to be East Europeans, simply because they stereotypically do a better job for less money. I’ll try to get some contacts later today if I can. The team that did the house opposite us were phenomenal. They’ve made all the other houses look shoddy! 😆Posted 5 years ago
I have a friend who does everything , well ,I might add,not cheap but competitive.Unfortunately the last person I recommended him to , stiffed him for £3k . 🙁Posted 5 years ago
Mail me if you want his number.
I’m in N2 – he and his partner are local which speeds things up a great deal.
thanks Adrian, there must be something about mountain bikers wanting to live around the North London Hills, but not being able to afford the high points of Highgate and Hampstead…Posted 5 years ago
I’ve got about 5 names now, but another would be good if you want to pass it one. Thanks.
How about an assault on the summit of Ally Park? Or the wooden cottage cafe in Queens Wood (fantastic home-made chocolate cake!)? Used to be able to do a good loop via the Parkland Walk, then Highgate Woods, Queens wood then the Parkland Walk again, Finsbury Park, Harringey Ladder and Ally Park, but they’ve put stupid non-cycling gates in Highgate wood, so you’re forced onto Muswell Hill road. Which is busy and dangerous.Posted 5 years ago
local ride sounds like a good idea – not ridden anywhere in London’s Parks apart from a quick blast along Parkland Walk at dusk, didn’t think it was worth it to be honest but would be happy to be proven wrong.
Saturday/ Sunday morning early doors are best for me.
unfitgeezer, I’m from the North East, but have been in London 10 years; my son is from North London 😉Posted 5 years agoqwertyMember
Once you enter Trent Park at Oakwood you can work your way northwards on some great sections of trail, its pretty easy to make your way to Hertford and beyond.Posted 5 years ago
I’m born of EN2 and spent 40 years there, now in GL5 but will be riding from Whitewebbs early this Sunday for a few hours.unfitgeezerMember
Trent Park has some interesting little rides not tried heading further North…
And to all you Crouch Enders (been there done that) N14 is way better cos its a few mins to the Green Belt 😛
Sorry I can’t add builder stuff the guys we used last year for major work were on the higher side but saying that they got the job done in the time they said they would and there was no language barrier..
they do lots of work around North LondonPosted 5 years ago
I could be up for a weekend a.m. trot too.Posted 5 years ago
N2 is east finchley .very near to you all,but fresher air .ha.
I often play out in and around Trent park,with a bit of
Monken Hadley thrown in.
That nice qwerty fella showed me the bits north of enfield(herts way etc)
which you can use to link to broxbourne&beyond.
I often link the lea valley canal to go home via epping.
(tbh not for a few months due to the slop!!)
I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a north London alps pootle!
