Other Neighbourhood Profile Pictures

The BRG is developing a Neighbourhood Profile through a participative process to enable local residents to create and articulate their own ideas about the Rye Lane West neighbourhood, and to make them accessible to others including the Council and developers. This page is an extension to that original profile to include other areas outside of Rye Lane West (see here for areas map). To start with, you can capture visually through pictures and videos what you like about your area and what you would like to see improved, especially its physical aspects. See here for more details of the project.

Trawling the web I came across this old postcard. I wonder if any of the houses still exist today.

Nunhead’s St. Mary Magdalene Church is demolished prior to a new rebuild. Photos show the flimsy constructed lead roofed modernist built church, replacing its predecessor destroyed by a WW2 air exploding bomb, is demolished in two days on the 22nd and 23rd of April 2010.

This is the authoritative map of the boundary of Peckham Rye Common, attached to the affidavit which transferred the Common to the London Borough of Southwark from the London County Council in the 1960s.

Peckham Rye Park, which is different from and distinct from the Common land of the Rye, is immediately adjacent to the south of the Common land and bounded by the roads Peckham Rye on east and west and by Colyton Road & Homestall Road to the south.

The roof of the Bussey building with its fabulous views across the whole of central London and beyond is the venue for CLF music and poetry weekenders. Local people and visitors of all generations enjoy the music in the building and on the roof, and the summer food and refreshments on the roof. See here for more information on the CLF and the weekender http://www.peckhamvision.org/wiki/CLF_Weekender_2007

This is a view of the Bussey building from the multi-storey car park. The original name of the company is still clearly visible along the side overlooking the railway tracks. This is the more decorative side of the building that is a good advertisement for the Bussey factory viewed by all rail passengers. Cleaned up it would still present a very impressive face of Peckham to all those who travel through on the trains. The current air of emptiness and dereliction is misleading as the building, and the site behind it, is full of small businesses, artists and other enterprises of various sorts. Further information on the Bussey building is on http://www.peckhamvision.org/wiki/Bussey_Building
