The Larcom Street Conservation Area is situated to the east of Walworth Road and to the south-east of Elephant and Castle town centre. It's bounded by Brandon Street to the east; Browning Street to the south; and the rears of buildings fronting Walworth Road to the west. The conservation area is notable as a surviving piece of well-enclosed mid to late 19th century urban fabric. Narrow streets fronted by terraced houses are interspersed with buildings associated with St. John’s Church; a vicarage, school, institute and a pair of symmetrical residential properties enclosing the eastern end of the church. Building heights across the area are generally uniform. The typical terraces are three-storey with canted ground floor bay windows, traditional Victorian detailing and small front gardens.
The unique urban structure of the area comprises short streets, a number of dog-legs and cul-de-sacs and buildings placed in close proximity.
