Skateboarding Spots
  • OK - this is no Oregon skatepark but the small redbrick banks near the junction of Clifton Way & Asylum Road are *way fun* for some sketchy revert practice/ tail stalls etc etc. The shops nearby are under cover of some flats & so the walkway area (which is smooth flagstones) is protected from the elements. It does however, stink of tramp piss pretty much all the time. The area does seem to be a magnet for inbread chavvy types too, but hey if you're stuck in Peckham you already know all about that! The much vaunted (but ultimately crap and of no use to anyone) Peckham Library has lots of the smooth stuff out front with curved metal benches and a huge half boulder to ollie for the brave. (This is SUCH a spot for an unusual video line.)
  • Peckham Libary, abit dodgy but quite good. The side of Peckham cinema, if your fucking good at wallrides the walls of the cinema are steep banks. The carpark next to the cinema has a few ramps , but i hate to think of what would happen if abig group of rudeboys happenede to pass through, estates on peckham high street are out of bounds rudeboy wise.
  • north peckham estate has a few bmx bumps but you would be wise to miss it as you will end up being mugged and beaten up by a gang
  • North Peckham estate used to have some mad bumps built for BMX, but I wouldn't recommend a visit.
