The Livesey Conservation Area is a surviving fragment of the Old Kent Road civic townscape around the core of the Opportunity Area. It is centred on the Grade II listed Livesey Library and takes in the historic townscape to the north of Ethnard Road.
It is characterised by its high quality, working class tenement housing above shops in fine terraces with largely intact original detailing, materials and architecture. It also includes landmark buildings and architectural set pieces of the Camberwell Library (now Livesey Museum) and Christ Church on Old Kent Road as well as the Royal London Friendly Society building.
