Local Information Peckham
The value of Peckham was a mere 30 shillings when owned by King
Henry I, who eventually gave it to his son Robert, Earl of Gloucester.
In the sixteenth century, Peckham was a sought after home for many
of the country’s wealthy families and large estates were built.
Later, in the nineteenth century, the town was still a quiet, small
village surrounded by beautiful fields and the former wealth was
countered by growing poverty.
To preserve greenery, Peckham Rye was purchased in 1868, and it
was here that William Blake had his famous vision of a cloud of
angels. Thousands flocked to the area to experience the vision and
the area was sold and now known as Peckham Rye Park.
Today, Peckham is home to many new families and houses are once
again being built at a steady pace. The healthcare industry has
become a major source of employment and economic development.
