Peckham Rye station's 'lost' waiting room to re-open after 50 years

It was once considered to be one of the grandest station waiting rooms in south London, but for decades the space at Peckham Rye railway station was bricked up and forgotten about.

Now Network Rail and a group of enthusiasts are on the brink of opening its doors after 55 years.

The Grade II listed Victorian building was designed by architect Charles Henry Driver and opened in 1865.

Network Rail, Southwark Council and the Railway Heritage Trust are working with architects to restore the space. Here you can see a preview of the waiting room and what is in store for future passengers.
