Snow lies on the ground on Calypso Crescent, North Peckham. The housing in this image dates from around 2005.

At the far end of the street is a former factory building, now converted into flats.
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.
