The London Blogger interviews #15: The Greenwich Phantom

This week it’s an anonymous London blogging legend – the mysterious Greenwich Phantom reveals all…well, more than usual!

If you had to describe your blog in less than 15 words how would you do it?

An intimate guide to Greenwich for Greenwichians (dunno if that’s a word).

Why did you start blogging?

I fancied writing a guidebook, but knew it would take ages. I figured the best way to do it would be to force myself to write one bit per day. I kept it online as an aide-memoire. It never occurred to me that people might actually read it. I was utterly stunned when I got my first reply

What about London inspires your blog?
Greenwich, of course. But, to be less facetious, it’s the little corners and funny little sights that most people don’t notice that really excite me. I love to point out things folk might have missed – the tiny quirks that make a perhaps average walk to work that little bit more interesting.

One thought on “The London Blogger interviews #15: The Greenwich Phantom

  1. The Greenwich Phantom blog is fab.

    I’m connected to this fantastic place in so many way and am incredibly proud of it – I’ve worked on the markets, I wrote my uni dissertation on it, my family go back several generations in Greenwich …. I bore anyone and everyone about it. So I am happy that the authoritative voice is so good.

    Top of my blog list – if I need the inside scoop on what’s going on it’s my first point of call. She does it so well (I’m informed GB is a lady!).
