The days of popping next door for a cup of sugar are gone - over half of Britons do not even know their neighbour's name, a new survey has revealed.
It suggests neighbourly relations have hit an all-time low - nearly two thirds (64 per cent) believe people are increasingly less friendly to those next door.
Whereas once neighbours might happily chat over the fence, or get together for a street party, more than one in ten (12 per cent) admit to going a month without speaking to neighbours.
A third of people said they have never spoken to their neighbours, and 55 per cent don't know their neighbour's name.
Surprisingly, Londoners, known for aloofness, are the most likely to "love thy neighbour", the survey showed the city is the most neighbourly place.
It was followed by the South-west, and Yorkshire. The West Midlands ranked sixth.
