Notes

London Fire Brigade Peckham Fire Station was constructed on this site and opened in 1990.

The station was built to replace the existing 1925 fire station here that had become unfit for purpose and was demolished in 1989 to make way for the current building.

The history of fire stations in the area is also evident on the adjacent site of Peckham Fire Station, as the Metropolitan Fire Brigade Camberwell Fire Station built in 1867 is located here.

This station was closed on the day the new station opened and was granted Grade II Listed Building status on 17th November 2008. Today, the premises are still in use by the South London Gallery.
