Usually the Clanks and scrape nosies come from the Firestation often in the middle of the night- to accompany the police helicopter that hovers over Union ST and Southwark Bridge Rd.
Other than that it is the ghost of Chritmas Present

Not sure what was going on on Union St, but someone seemed to be going hammer and tongs with a pneumatic drill on Galleywall Road last night - how very sociable!

I think the horrible clanking noise is when they are doing something to the railway tracks , maintainance etc . When I used to live in Rotherham Walk it used to wake me up and drive me mad at times . I would still give my hind teeth to be be back though !!!!

Yes if you live by the rail tracks, sometimes a slow clunking machine trawls slowly across them, sometimes at about 3am Monday morning, waking us up
