The Mission conservation area is centred on the grade listed Pembroke House (The Mission) and takes in the nearby historic properties on Elstead Street and Tisdale Place as well as the listed school and other historic buildings on Flint Street.
It includes a mix of residential properties, interspersed with municipal, educational, religious and missionary buildings, all in one compact neighbourhood constructed over a short period towards the end of the 19th century. It includes elegant streets of purpose built terraced housing for lower-middle and working class residents, fine and typical ‘board’ schools, still in use today, a surviving public house and landmark buildings including the former Flint Street police station.
