Queen’s Road, formerly known as Deptford Lane, was renamed in honour of Queen Victoria.

Queen’s Road extends eastwards from Peckham High Street to New Cross Road.

The surrounding neighbourhood area was market gardens until about 1840 when a network of terraces called New Peckham began to be laid out.

Albert Road, a turning out of Queen’s Road, was formerly known as Cow Walk.

The first branded cigarettes manufactured in Britain - Sweet Threes- were made at a factory on Queen’s Road around 1859 by Robert Peacock Gloag. Gloag had been paymaster to the Turkish forces during the Crimean War, where he is reported to have seen locals smoking. Gloags business was largely responsible for the popularity of cigarettes in the UK.

In 1926 the first holistic health centre in Britain, known as the Pioneer, later known as The Peckham Experiment, was opened at 142 Queens Road. Opened by doctors George Scott Williamson and Innes Pearse of the Royal Free Hospital, it was purposefully located in the area due to the deprived nature of the area, the low income and poor level of education of the population. The centre provided regular medical checks and gave advice on healthy living. In 1935 the centre moved around the corner to St Mary’s Road.

Modern housing developments in the Queen’s Road area include Peckham’s Acorn estate and the Somerville estate in New Cross.

Ethelburga Estate
The Ethelburga Estate - named after Ethelburga Road - was an LCC development dating between 1963–65. According to the Wikipedia, it has a "pleasant knitting together of a series of internal squares". I have to add that it’s extremely dull :)

Angel & Trumpet, Stepney Green
The Angel & Trumpet Public House in Stepney Green was run by my ancestors in the 1930’s. Unfortunately, it was a victim on WWII and was badly damaged and subsequently demolished. I have one photograph that I believe to bethe pub, but it doesn’t show much more that my Great Aunt cleaning the steps.

Blackfriars (1959 - 1965)
I lived in Upper Ground from 1959 to 1964 I was 6 years old my parents Vince and Kitty run the Pub The Angel on the corner of Upper Ground and Bodies Bridge. I remember the ceiling of the cellar was very low and almost stretched the length of Bodies Bridge. The underground trains run directly underneath the pub. If you were down in the cellar when a train was coming it was quite frightening

Queens Road Peckham

Queens Road Peckham railway station serves the area to the east of Peckham.

The station originally opened, with the line, on 13 August 1866 and had two wooden side platforms but three tracks passing through it.

Until 1911 passenger trains ran to the East London Line stopping at Old Kent Road.

The present island platform dates from the 1970s which is on a viaduct with the line: there are 48 steps leading to it, and one block of platform buildings.

It became a London Overground station on 9 December 2012, having previously been on the Inner South London Line.
