Holly Grove Conservation Area is situated in the centre of Peckham, to the south of Peckham Road. A railway line runs east-west through the conservation area with Rye Lane forming a boundary to the east. The Holly Grove Conservation Area, essentially a 19th century planned suburban development with a strong landscape element, contrasts with its immediate surroundings. These typical inner city main streets have a lively variety of commercial activity, based on retail uses in addition to residential uses. Choumert Road, forming the southern boundary of the conservation Area also has a more commercial character. The northern boundary is clearly defined against the grounds of the two schools either side of Bellenden Road. Most of the conservation area was constructed between the early 19th century and early 20th century, using a relatively limited range of materials to classical and, later, revivalist architectural styles.
