The Camberwell Grove Conservation Area is situated in the area above the original Camberwell village. It is based on two long residential streets of Camberwell Grove and Grove Lane, built between the 1770s and 1840s. It also includes areas of historic interest in Champion Park, Denmark Hill and Grove Park. The northern end of the conservation area is characterised by local shops and restaurants and includes St. Giles Church. The western side of the conservation area between Denmark Hill and Grove Lane has a strong institutional character based on the extensive building complexes of the Maudsley Hospital and Salvation Army College. Camberwell Grove, Grove Park and Grove Lane are characterised by residential developments dating from the late Georgian through to the Edwardian period. The houses from the 18th and 19th centuries follow classical themes, whereas those from the late 19th century adopt a more vernacular ‘English’ expression.
