The Rosendale Road Peabody Estate was built between 1902-1908 in the Italianate style, it consists of a mixture of flats and cottages and child friendly play areas. The community hall was added in 1913. A 'Jubilee concert' took place there in March 1914 to mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the first Peabody estate in Spitalfields.

Located moments from Herne Hill and West Dulwich transport links and access to the City are excellent via Thames Link. Brockwell Park boasts a wealth of outstanding health and lifestyle facilities including Lido and Gym, sports pitches, basketball as well as idyllic walks and jogging routes around its lakes. Herne Hill, Dulwich and Brixton are all on its doorstep with their boutique shops, The Bullfinch Brewery Tap, artisan bakeries, gastro pubs as well as an abundance of amazing night life and entertainment venues.

More than 100 years ago The Times (2nd April 1902) took an interest in the new Peabody Buildings in Rosendale Road, Herne Hill. It noted both the scale and the novelty of the project which, if completed, would have created a new town of 5,000 people housed in 48 blocks surrounded by a perimeter of cottages.

However, only 12 blocks, the ones still standing today, were built at the time, along with 150 cottages. The Peabody Hill development came much later, in the 1970s.

The Herne Hill project also resolved another problem. Working class Londoners needed to live close to their work or at least have affordable transport. Not until the railway companies provided a network of cheap workmen's trains' in the last decades of the Nineteenth Century was this viable. In 1902, within a short walk, tenants could travel from Herne Hill to Victoria or to the City for 2d a day return. We think of commuters today as office workers but, in 1902, central London, including the City, was teeming with factories, workshops and warehouses as well as commerce, retail and finance.
