The Gardens Conservation Area is situated in south Peckham, on the west side of Peckham Rye Common. Peckham Rye and the common itself forms the eastern boundary of the conservation area, the East Dulwich Road runs east-west close to the northern boundary of the conservation Area and provides access into Oakhurst Grove in the conservation area. The core of the area is The Gardens themselves, a neat square of houses around a central green space. They include the adjacent streets of Oakhurst Grove and Kelmore Grove. The scale of buildings in The Gardens Conservation Area varies from 2 storey terraces to large scale 4 and 5 storey houses. However, there is a good deal of consistency in materials and detailing that reflects the 60-70 year period of the 19th century when the area was developed.
