The Wilson Grove Conservation Area lies between River Thames and Jamaica Road. The conservation area is characterised by 1920s low rise terraced cottages fronting on to Wilson Grove, Emba Street and Janeway Street. The cottages were originally built by the former Bermondsey Borough Council as municipal housing in the “garden village form”, inspired by the work of Dr Alfred Salter a local pioneering doctor. The cottages display a mixture of neo-Georgian and vernacular features and are set back from the street with small front gardens and larger gardens to the rear.
