The Pullens Estate Conservation Area is located south of the Elephant and Castle. The conservation area comprises properties in Amelia Street, Illiffe Street, Peacock Street, Penton Place and Crampton Street. The associated workshops behind are accessed from Peacock Yard, Illiffe Yard and Clements Yard. The conservation area is characterised by later 19th century tenement buildings with attached rear workshops. The tenement buildings are four storeys in height, with flat roofs, and each unit is three bays wide with an ornate central entrance to a common stairwell. The yellow stock brick side and rear walls of all the buildings are utilitarian in character. In contrast, the front elevations are articulated with decorative bands of nail-head decoration in moulded brick. Further ornamentation is provided by richly detailed painted terracotta windows and door heads. The two-storey workshops attached to the rear of the tenements in a mews fashion are simpler and more functional in appearance. On the south side of Amelia Street an enclosed open space, Pullens Gardens, has been created following the demolition of the tenement block. There are no green open spaces among the Pullens Estate Buildings and Pullens Gardens provides a small area of green ‘breathing space’.
