A Celebration of Peckham’s Historic Architecture!

To help launch Southwark Council’s consultation for the new central Peckham Conservation area, the Peckham Society has organized an evening event, which is a must-see for enthusiasts for South London’s architecture!

– Architectural Historian Johanna Smith of English Heritage offers a new look at the Peckham High Street and Rye Lane based on her discoveries while writing the recent Peckham Historic Area Assessment.

– Conservation graduate students from New York University will present fresh research on Holdron’s and the Bussey Building, landmarks along Rye Lane.

– Local architect Benedict O’Looney will talk about the next steps in the restoration of the Peckham Rye Station and the Peckham Mosque extension on Choumert Grove being built this summer.

– Council officers will be joining us to discuss the proposed new conservation area and the Peckham and Nunhead Area Action Plan, also being consulted upon.

– Savour the faded glory of the Old Waiting Room at the Peckham Rye Station awaiting its Renaissance.

6:30 – 8:30pm Thursday the 31st of March at the Old Waiting Room, Platform 3, Peckham Rye Station. No rail tickets necessary!
