The Rye Lane Peckham Conservation Area is located in the commercial core of Peckham and defined by its three principal roads: Peckham High Street, Peckham Hill Street and Rye Lane, and the staggered crossroads where they meet. Whilst these three roads share the same pattern of development, each is broadly characterised by different phases of the area’s commercial and retail growth from the 18th to mid-20th century. Unlike neighbouring conservation areas (Holly Grove and Peckham Hill Street) there is no predominate architectural style or palette of materials. The character of the Rye Lane Peckham Conservation Area is attributed to the eclectic architectural styles and materials.
