The King’s Bench Conservation Area is a small, compact area in the north east of the borough, just to the east of Blackfriars Road. It's located between Glasshill Street and the railway viaduct to the east and the east side of Rushworth Street to the west; and between King James Street in the south and Pocock Street to the north. The wider character of the area is of a later 18th century street pattern overlaid first by the mid 19th century brick railway viaduct and then by later 19th and earlier 20th century residential, religious and industrial development, mostly of two or three storeys.
