Asylum’s setting is dated as early as 1830 and was once at the heart of London’s largest complex of almshouses, the only alternative to the workhouse for many poor and elderly people.
Over the past 200 years, it has been a key feature of the Peckham map, having been a chapel at the centre of the community for many decades.
Its engagement with the local area declined after the war and it fell into disrepair in the 1960s.
In 2010, it was taken over by Maverick Projects and now hosts art exhibitions and live music events, as well as private functions including weddings.
