The sell-off of Kingdom Hall's in the UK is continuing unabated as we are about to enter 2017....
In addition to the THIRTY-FIVE Kingdom Halls highlighted by The Search a couple of months back.....
It seems the cry has gone out to: "sell them faster! faster! faster!"....
NOW, they're not even waiting to convert into a Kingdom Hall before they're being sold!
Yeap, you heard right!!!
The site: Unit 2, 191 to 199 Southampton Way, Camberwell, London SE5 7EJ - Google Streetview
Apparently "this prominent, modern building is now surplus to the requirements of the Jehovah Witnesses, who had intended to operate a Kingdom Hall from the premises."

According to jw.org, the two closest current KH's to the above site are
197a Coldharbour Lane, Camberwell, London SE5 9PA - A single auditorium used by four congregations, hidden away and sandwiched between two residential houses Google Streetview
1A Scylla Road, Peckham, London SE15 3NY - A two storey double auditorium used by seven congregations, hidden around the corner from the main street (though has been recently re-built) - Google Streetview
It seems - from the Local Council change of use that the Bermondsey congregation was being used as the 'lead' congregation - they currently meet at the multi-auditorium KH at: 200 New Cross Road, New Cross Gate, London SE14 5PG - Google Streetview
Oh, and by the way, is seem that that realtor - Acorn Commerical - has been selling a few KH's.....
