Christ Church, Old Kent Road
Christ Church, Old Kent Road
A prominent Anglican church on a busy main road. The church's name is properly that of Camberwell, Christ Church (named for the ancient parish from which its own was taken) but it markets itself as a Peckham church (being the nearer urban centre).

The church is in the Gothic revival style, and was built in 1867 to the designs of architect E. Bassett Keeling. The church was damaged by bombing during the Second World War and was repaired and remodelled in 1958. The dangerous top of the tower was removed in the late 1960s and a new flat roof with parapet walls was provided (information from Southwark diocesan website).
