Peabody in the news

As part of our programme of improvements in The Moorings, we’re beginning a project to transform the arches along Byron Close.

The arches host various activities including a dance studio and a church and community spaces. There will be even more happening this year with a new gymnastics club is set to open soon and a new BMX track being set up by the Archway Project, on top of the existing operators.

In line with this, we’re beginning a project to transform the frontage along the arches and create and attractive and welcoming entrance to the arches.
