Church of St Peter, Lordship Lane, Camberwell SE22 - Southwark

Work started on this church, by Charles Barry Jnr, in 1873 on land gifted by Dulwich College for a new parish formed from St Giles Camberwell. The tower and spire were completed in 1875 and the vestry enlarged in 1893. The Church of England closed the church in 1984 and sold it to Worth Abbey who then sold it to the Deeper Life Bible Church. Masonry is in Kentish ragstone with Bath stone dressings, with banded London stock and red brick internally. Slated roofs of the nave and timber-framed spire are in bad condition. There is settlement on the north side aisle and the parish hall is derelict.
