Calypso Gardens
Calypso Gardens
Calypso Gardens is a new "London square", created in a part of North Peckham which underwent regeneration early in the 21st Century. The housing in the background dates from around 2005.
North Peckham

The North Peckham area has seen major changes in recent decades.

In the early 1970s, a huge council housing estate was built here. High-level walkways connected the blocks of flats. Over time, the estate gained a reputation for crime and social problems.

Urban regeneration came at the start of the 21st Century. Part of the estate was demolished, replaced by new streets flanked by a mix of privately-owned and social housing. In other parts of the estate, where the 1970s-built flats still stand, the high-level walkways have been removed and entryphone systems installed, to improve security and to reduce the risk of crime.
