Major Bermondsey development commences at biscuit factory site

Work has commenced on a major 1,500-home development in Bermondsey at the old Peek Freans biscuit factory.

Plans were approved some time ago before the site was sold by Grosvenor to Greystar, with minor revisions since made.

The site is a short walk to Bermondsey station on the Jubilee line. It’s also close to the long closed Spa Road station situated between London Bridge and Deptford. It acted as a terminus for trains towards Central London while the original London Bridge station was constructed.

No, it isn’t ever reopening.


Arches at the ground floor of forthcoming towers mimic those of the railway viaduct alongside.

In recent years parts of the site have been cleared.

Now there are visible signs of work beginning, with an update from the developer in July confirming the news.

Greystar stated in July that work will begin on infrastructure works enabling future construction of the buildings to start in2024.




Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs and and pay to keep it going with hosting fees, URL fees and Theme costs adding into the hundreds of pounds.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

  • Hello Folks,
    Ooh ! Just the mere mention of “Peek Freans” and that sweet smell of biscuit-making comes flooding back into my memory as I was a regular passer-by on the train.(SR, Greenwich Line,1980’s.)
