    although not an entirely new idea - the london & greenwich railway was constructed in the 1830s with a 'tree lined boulevard' alongside the line

    (very little of this is left - mechanics path in deptford - now minus trees - is one of the fragments)

    Dear South East London - The Peckham Coal Line is now Crowdfunding through Spacehive. Take part and help this resident initiated project move one step closer to creating an urban linear park that would connect South London. An oasis of greenery soaring high across the rooftop-tops of Peckham on a disused rail siding. A route as useful as it is beautiful, unlocking dormant Victorian infrastructure to connect neighbourhoods and High Streets and people to work.

    More than a park – a vital connection: The 900-meter link will be for walkers and cyclists and will bridge a gap in a wider network of greenways that would run largely traffic free from Loughborough Junction to Greenland Dock where a new bridge to Canary Wharf is proposed by Sustrans. We need to get our campaign out to a wider audience so if any of you know of someone who might be interested please forward our website to them: http://www.peckhamcoalline.org

    ...and please support us at our crowdfunding site: http://www.spacehive.com/peckhamcoalline
