Conservation areas

Camberwell Green

The Camberwell Green Conservation Area is situated in the area of the original Camberwell village, now the junction of Camberwell New Road and Camberwell Church Street. The conservation area essentially covers the Green and the main streets, at the centre of Camberwell, with primarily commercial frontages (shops, pubs, banks and other services). The conservation area is distinctive for its three and four storey blocks, which typically have fine detailed upper storeys repeated along the length of the street frontage. The conservation area is also characterised by purpose built commercial buildings in elaborate revivalist styles. The Peabody tenement buildings provide a distinctive backdrop on the eastern side of the Green.
