I thought I would kick off this Weekly Round Up with a photo I took of autumnal Greenwich Park on Tuesday morning.
Always good to be out and about with the camera although I did forget to check out the Old Royal Naval College where at the start of the week, a new version of Cinderella joined the incredible list of films that have used it as a set. Such is the popularity of the stunning ORNC that Empire magazine recently asked it was the most popular filming location in the world.
Another location in the borough to be used for filming recently has been Rushgrove House in Woolwich. This Georgian mansion is tucked away near the Royal Artillery barracks and it was used in the summer as a set for Mike Leigh's new movie about JMW Turner, starring Timothy Spall. There will be a rare chance to see inside the property this weekend as it will be one of the venues for an exhibition by students from the Royal College of Arts.
If you'd rather see the works of Turner, it just so happens an exhibition of his marine art has just opened at the National Maritime Museum.
Historian, and councillor, Mary Mills has had a first look at a new book called Greenwich Revealed. The book is an investigation in to some early 18th century line drawings of Greenwich. It "may be the most important book written about 'West' Greenwich," commented Mary on Twitter. Written by much-respected historians Julian Watson and Neil Rhind, it's available now in Warwick Leadlay and Sabo's newsagent, priced £10.
It hasn't been a very busy week on the Greenwich.co.uk forum but there's been some more posts to the forum thread about the proposed hotel where Trident Hall currently stands, including details of a petition.
Speaking of petitions, Stewart Christie has just started one to try and win support for the idea of protecting the Woolwich Grand theatre by getting it listed as an asset of community value. This is as a response to a developer's proposal to replace it with flats.
Cable car's four commuters
Snipe had a bit of a scoop this week when it revealed that the cable car is down to just four regular commuters. The story got picked up by plenty of other news outlets, too.
West Greenwich House
As part of the big development called the Movement behind Greenwich High Road and Norman Road - which is made up of new flats, student accommodation, a hotel and more - there has been extension provided for West Greenwich House. Local residents are invited to go and see the completed extension to the community centre on Monday, between 3pm and 7pm.

It wouldn't be one my weekly round ups without a plug for my calendar. This week I delivered some copies to the lovely Avery Hill Park Cafe, which means it's now finally on sale in all of the postcodes that are pictured inside: SE10, SE7, SE18 and SE9. You can get it online or see all the stockists here.
