The River Peck in the Japanese Garden, Peckham Rye park

The River Peck is a small stream in London that was enclosed in 1823. Today, parts of this stream can still be seen on the west side of Peckham Rye Park.[1] In South Bermondsey it flows into the Earl's Sluice which has its confluence with the Thames at Deptford Wharf.[2] Peckham Rye means "the village by the River Peck".[3]
