With the imminent closure of Affleck’s Palace in Manchester (for conversion to more bleeding luxury bleeding flats) and now this, it’s already been a grim old year for those of us who like our shopping a little more leftfield and beatnik than Bluebleedingwater.

The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.
As a Camden resident, I can assure the hippies, goths, punks and general wierdos on the forum that it’s only the Canal Market (an utter dump unless you’re in desperate need of being skewewed, sorry pierced) which has been affected and the decent part of the old market, notably the stables and the lock, is fine and dandy. The Hawley Arms is a bit of a mess which is either a tragedy or a damned good thing, depending on your point of view.
