As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Peckham.
History of Peckham
The original name 'Pecheham' was found in the Domesday Book of 1086, in the reign of William I. This is the Peckham we know today, in south-east London. By 1361, it was referred to as 'Pekkham', which is Old English and translates as a 'homestead by a peak or hill'. This hill is most likely to be Telegraph Hill. However, some have referred to the name as 'the place of the river Peck', a small stream that runs through the area. Peckham became popular as a wealthy residential area by the 16th century, and by the 18th century the area became more commercial, and was attractive to industrialists who wished to avoid the higher rents of central London. Peckham also had extensive market gardens, which produced figs and melons, for the local markets of London. Up to the early 19th century, Peckham was largely rural. Later in the century, there was major change, including a new district, Peckham New Town, built on land owned by the Hill family. This was located at Peckham Hill Street, and the family also gave its name to the area's main Peckham Hill Road. Further transport developments were railways and horse-drawn trams. Accessibility was asset for young affluent residents, which had a good effect on the area. Rye Lane became a major shopping street.
