The Gloucester Grove estate is within the Peckham ward of the Borough of Southwark. The Greater London Council constructed it in the 1970's. In the 1990's much of the estate was transformed by Estate Action funding. Homes were refurbished, garden and play areas were introduced and large glass atriums as entrances were installed. The design won architectural awards and the glass atrium which stretches along St George's Way provide the most stunning and dramatic design of Council owned accommodation in Peckham, and arguably the whole of the borough.
This is the entrance to Willsbridge, part of the Gloucester Grove Estate in Peckham, in south east London, viewed from St. George's Way, which runs along the southern edge of Burgess Park. The estate typifies the Peckham ward as a whole and has a large young adult population and is very ethnically diverse. 77% are described as black and or from an ethnic minority. The Peckham ward's young adult population is higher than the national average. There are both a very high percentage of family households, and lower than the Borough average of senior citizens, on the estate
