This area is typical of early residential development off the Old Kent Road with a mix of urban buildings fronting the main road with smaller scale cottages, industry and school buildings located on side streets. It includes intact early 19th-century terraced, semi-detached and detached properties with fine detailing and largely unaltered exteriors. The area encompasses a fine and typical ‘Board’ school still in use today and open space with trees, landscaping and sports facilities the form of which preserves historic streetscapes.
