A quick update. We are now at 60% with 24 days to go.

If any of you are around on Saturday afternoon please come down to Peckham where we are doing a 'Beer Line walk' - a history trail between the areas breweries (Gosnells, Brick, The Nines(bar) and Rebellion) to support the Peckham Coal Line Park - each brewery is producing a Coal Line drink for example Brick is making a porter - this dark beer was traditionally drunk by railway workers.

We are celebrating the areas industrial past and future - supporting local business, raising money for a park and drinking beer.. whats not to like.. so come celebrate October and the Peckham Coal Line. Event details here: [www.facebook.com]

I've been told there's now an architect's impression of how the proposed walkway reaches the ground at the NNE end near Queens Road.

Does anyone know where this can be seen?

The initial crowdfunding campaign has been successful the Council has pledged 10K too, which pushes them over their target:

I was told (on Sunday) that Southwark Council has allocated 65k.

I suspect the 10K is to put them over the qualifying amount for the crowdfunding project and the remainder will be allocated subsequently.

Hello East Dulwich,
Amazing - Weve done it!
Just before the weekend we received Southwark Councils pledge of 10000, which, with your pledges to date, means together we have reached the target.
With just 5 days left and an ever growing wave of momentum we want to see just how far we can get, with more of course we can do more and stretch the scope and reach of the Coal Line further. For this reason the 10000 pledge will be included at the last minute because if it were added now the campaign would close this allows those of you who still want to be part of our journey the chance to join in this movement. Together we are proving that we have the ability to transform where we live ourselves rather than it imposed by external forces so as we close the first chapter its not too late to join in the story.

Come and meet your fellow pioneers at drinks at the Hope this Thursday from 7pm: [www.facebook.com]
Thanks,
Nick

The maximum BSI gradient is 1:12.

What is it for the proposed Coal Line?

messageRe: The Peckham Coal Line urban park is now Crowdfunding
Posted by Reg Smeeton 17 November, 2015 09:46

Sorry for being obtuse, but where is this mystery Coal Line? Is it a torn up track immediately next to the existing line between Peckham Rye and Queens Rd Peckham, or is it a separate viaduct? Either way, is what's proposed basically a walkway/cycle way right next to the current trains?

messageRe: The Peckham Coal Line urban park is now Crowdfunding
Posted by Nigello 17 November, 2015 10:28

It is a partly-used track - mostly on a viaduct, I think - that the developers want to turn into a walkable and cycblable pathway to link two parts of Peckham and to regenerate the areas throught/over which it passes.

The map and diagrams on page 1 of this thread should help you.

I've looked at the map and diagrams. As far as I can tell, it's just the unused tracks directly next to the existing Peckham Rye to QRd Peckham line, so we're talking about a walkway/cycle way right next to the trains. Is that right? Not that I object, but I had in my head some idyllic disused viaduct floating quietly above the streets away from the hustle and bustle.

Is the proposed Coal Line also on hold and cannot be progressed until Network Rail do more work on revenue maximisation from "Phase Four: Western Courtyard Area"?

The PCL is looking for input from people:

Also, part of the Peckham Coal Line project is to celebrate and record the heritage of SE15. By working with other local groups uncovering Peckhams history, we want to collect and present memories people have of the area incorporating the coal yard, Bussey Building and Copeland Park Estate. What we'd like to end up with is a series of people profiles that, together, tell the story of the area from as far back as living memory allows to today.

These might be people who remember when the yard was used for coal storage and distribution, through to the time before the Bussey Building and Copeland Park was turned into the thriving arts and community treasure it is today. If youve any suggestions as to who we should talk to, drop us a line at team@peckhamcoalline.org .

1. You could define the "Copeland Park Estate" by providing a map.

2. If you know the original post code of the "Bussey Building" it would help with historical research.

3. AND, what about an answer to the coal line access and gradient problems (both ends)?

The original coal line sidings were a bit of an oddity.

They were "foreign" railway lines.

They were "owned" by the LNWR (London and North Western Railway).

As "foreign" lines payment was required to the LB&SCR (London, Brighton and South Coast Railway) for the LNWR to run over the LB&SCR metals. Theses charges were calculated by the RCH (Railway Clearing House).

So for history, a quick consultation with the NRM (National Railway Museum, about LNWR, LB&SCR, and RCH records relating to Peckham might prove productive.

The RCH map of the LNWR sidings is readily available on-line.
