The Spike is a beautiful and diverse community space that raises awareness of low-impact living, celebrates the fascinating history of the place and makes dreams come true.

Emerging from DIY culture, the Spike Surplus Scheme landed in 1998 in an abandoned, fly-tipped, burnt-out building. This building was formerly The South London Children’s Scrap Scheme, and before that, the administrative block for the largest Doss-house in London (check ‘Down and Out in Paris and London’, George Orwell), providing shelter for up to 1,100 wayfarers a night.

Help save the Spike!!!

The Spike operates on a not-for-profit basis, so that it is within reach of everyone. To date we have never charged admission for anything. This has been made possible thanks to local support and by a favourable lease from the council.
But this may end soon! The Spike is under threat of closure! Please help! Sign the petition!
