Peckham Rye Common North

Contributor's name: 

This small green is the northern edge of Peckham Rye Common, just where Nigel Road joins Peckham Rye and Rye Lane. As part of the Common, it has the same protection as the Common from development. Until a year or so ago, there was an ugly broken metal railing around it, and the same kind of railing around the next part of the Common just further south. Then the Council took the railings away and it transformed the look and feel of the whole place, literally over night! It was wonderful. In summer the trees in this part of the Common from here to East Dulwich Road are magnificent, and my most favourite tree place in the area.
