About the Croydonist

Welcome to the Croydonist – an ever growing collection of the best bits of our borough according to us. From cocktails and cuisine, to quirky culture, and cool Croydon people, we write about it if we like it.

Behind the Croydonist are Angela Martin (Croydon convert) and Julia Woollams (Croydon native).

If you would like to add to the Croydonist please get in touch.





Co-founders and lead writers

Angela’s particular passions are food and films, when she’s not composing music that is. These are subjects that regularly feature in her Cronx musings.

Julia, a graphic designer by trade, loves nothing more than writing about the quirks and culture of Croydon (especially when it includes the 50p Building).

Guest writers

Sam Hill is a food, beer and wine obsessive who enjoys experiencing and writing about all the culinary delights that Croydon has to offer.

Kake is a local historian who relishes uncovering surprises in various archives, as well as exploring and documenting Croydon as it is today.

Ian Packham is an adventurer, travel writer, events speaker and Croydon native contributing from on the road in Italy as he researches his great uncle’s war years.
