As I remember it was a set up of stalls but there may have been a shop behind it, coming from creek road? it was on the right hand side before the station, it was sort of set back off the pavement, but I was quite young then so may not remember it right?
My wife is a Deptford girl and used to live off the High Street close to St Paul’s Church. She’s just been rattling off a load of names of shops and boozers that used to be down there.

I havnt lived there since the late 50's when we moved out to Grove Park with my dads job, there used to be a playground in the approach to St Pauls and me and my mate sometimes used to spend all of our 6d pocket money on 6 jam donuts and sit on the swings or whatever and scoff them.. happy days!

My wife’s mum and dad used to go for a drink in the Pilot and end up getting pease pudding and saveloy to take home from the shop next to the fish shop.

I’ve just been told that you might have bought your penny donuts in a bakery called Edwards and she called the playground you ate them in the rec.

Fantoes by Deptford Station, as a 7 year old used to hide in the under counter storage areas from my mum. Used to be an M&S down there too.

We lived at the Deptford Broadway end of Deptford High St but I used to see a girl at the other end and remember the adventure playground being called the Kentie. No idea why. Might have been a pub name.

Used to play in the dumps near to where the tree huggers are now, near Reginald Road.
