Retrospective

FOOD FOR THOUGHT SPA TERMINUS First featured: 2010. Evin O’Riordain, owner of The Kernel brewery at the Spa Terminus (see page opposite) regards the other businesses around him as more than just friends – they’re also his suppliers. As he speaks to Southwark, O’Riordain enjoys his Friday morning croissant, which comes from The Little Bread Pedlar nearby. And Spa Terminus offers more than just breakfast: there is London Honey, jam from England Preserves, the Cheese & Ham company, Neal’s Yard Dairy, Monmouth Coffee, and vegetable supplier Natoora. Opened in the summer of 2010, it would be tough to find such an impressive community of artisan food producers and wholesalers working, creating and trading within such a unique setting as railway arches leading from London Bridge station.

MALTBY STREET MARKET First featured on opening: 2010. Quite simply, the success of Maltby Street market, where operators first started trading in 2010, is its variety and quality of produce offered to thousands of yearly visitors. Open on weekends and every Friday in December, the 31 traders and five rotating guest traders, range from sauces at African Volcano, Bad Brownies (the evidence on tasting is to the contrary) and The Cheese Truck. Starting out as an overspill from Borough Market – the flight to the street first came about as traders sought out less touristy destinations while maintaining their presence in the area.

THIS PAGE: The continual redevelopment of Peckham’s multistorey car park is one of London’s best examples of success in regeneration.

CREATIVE COMMUNITIES: MAKING A MARK PECKHAM: MULTI-STOREY CAR PARK - BOLD TENDENCIES/FRANK’S BAR/PECKHAM LEVELS Peckham Levels opened: 2017. It is perhaps the most featured of destinations in Southwark magazine, where people have been coming for years to the bars, art galleries and creative spaces of a former multi-storey car park in Peckham. Not only one of London’s most fashionable places to hang out, it is also one of the capital’s

most successful regeneration stories. Not bad for a Brutalist-style building, built on Rye Lane in 1983 for a Sainsbury’s supermarket. Art gallery Bold Tendencies, founded in 2007, has hosted the likes of the BBC Proms there, as well as a myriad of other events. Frank’s Café, on the rooftop, is called the ‘flagship architectural commission of Bold Tendencies’, and has been a summer staple since 2009. Meanwhile, Peckham Levels, which opened in 2017, is spread over seven storeys. The scheme has office space, bars, cafes, street food, a market selling fresh produce on the ground floor, events space and a yoga studio.
