Peabody Camberwell Green Estate

Peabody’s Camberwell Green Estate

Peabody has completed work on more than 60 homes close to an estate in south London it built more than 100 years ago.

The new 66-home development features a mix of flats across a six-storey block on Camberwell Road.

Designed by Weston Williamson, the new scheme has been built opposite the red-brick Camberwell Green Estate built in 1911 after architect Victor Wilkins won a competition for its design two years earlier.

It was the first of Peabody’s residential schemes to feature entirely self-contained plumbing, meaning the estate’s residents did not have to share sinks or toilets.
