A Tour with Benedict O’Looney

 

An architectural tour of Rye Lane

This walk celebrates some of the best historic and contemporary architecture in Central Peckham. Using Rye Lane as it’s spine, we will first look at the traces of Peckham’s village core on the High Street. Next we will the explore the Art Deco architecture from the golden age of shopping in early 20th century Peckham, including some recent architectural discoveries at the former Holdrons, now Khan’s Bargains. Following this we will look at the recent refurbishment of the north wing of Peckham Rye Station which includes a museum-like restoration of the lost 1930s station toilets.
