Reliance Arcade, Brixton Market, Market Row SW9 - Lambeth

Covered market built 1923-5 by Andrews and Peascod, of brick and concrete construction. The market is a narrow arcade from Electric Lane to Brixton Road. Fronting Electric Lane is a buff faience facade with Art Deco Egyptian-style detailing, which has been poorly repaired in the past. The units within the arcade are mostly occupied, but the roof and windows are in particularly poor condition. Funding has been secured from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for the wider area and discussions between the owner and the Local Authority regarding conservation and repair works are underway.
