Conservation areas

Camberwell New Road

The Camberwell New Road Conservation Area lies to the west of Camberwell Village, and includes part of Camberwell New Road as far as the railway line. It includes a triangular area to the south bounded by the railway line and Flodden Road. The conservation area includes significant architecture from several distinct phases, of which the most important are the late Georgian terraces, all of which are listed, along Camberwell New Road. In the side streets, are groups of mainly terraced houses dating from the mid- to the later19th century, with a few detached or semi-detached villas or mansion flats. The layout of the area largely derives from its rapid growth as part of the urbanisation of London in the early part of the 19th century and the new road between Kennington and Camberwell Green provided an opportunity for new development along its length.
