Deptford High Street and St Paul’s Church conservation area

Information about the Deptford High Street and St Paul’s Church conservation area.

Deptford High Street and St Paul’s Church conservation areas were designated in 1976 and 1975 respectively.

The area grew following Henry VIII’s Royal Naval Dockyard and contains many 18th century buildings including:

  • St Paul's church (Grade I)

  • the Grade II* listed houses on Albury Street

  • several small vernacular buildings along Deptford High Street and on Tanners Hill (the latter listed at Grade II).

The area continues to evolve and is particularly known today for its vibrant street market, independent shops and residential accommodation above and beyond the high street.

A Conservation Area Appraisal was adopted on 11 November 2019 which sets out the areas special architectural and historic interest that we have a duty to preserve or enhance.

There is a delay in getting the adopted Conservation Area Appraisal uploaded onto the website. Until this is done please email conservation@lewisham.gov.uk and we will email you a copy.
