Rectory Grove (CA02)
Reference number: CA 02
First designated: 1968
Boundary extended: 1976, 1979, 1986 and 2001
The conservation area is of a principally linear form, containing Rectory Grove, St. Paul's Churchyard and part of Turret Grove, including Larkhall Rise to the railway bridge and also the entire length of Clapham Manor Street to its junction with Clapham High Street.
The buildings are mostly 19th century in date and predominantly residential, although, there are shops and two impressive churches. There are two distinct character areas - Rectory Grove and Larkhall Rise are both informal, intimate and leafy, while Clapham Manor Street is straight, wide and much more formal, which is reflected in its architecture.
