Former Peckham Fire Station, 82, Peckham Road SE5 - Southwark

Former fire station built circa 1867 by Edward Cresy Junior which later became part of the Kennedy's sausage factory. The remainder of the factory has been demolished. The building had been vacant for some time and was in a poor state of repair, with water ingress and widespread rot. The South London Gallery secured grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Mayor's London Regeneration Fund for the restoration of the building to expand the Gallery's activities. Works are now underway.
