Deptford Town Hall conservation area

Information about the Deptford Town Hall conservation area.

Designated in 2000, the area is one of the most historically important areas of Deptford, as the formation of the new Borough of Deptford in 1895 allowed it to become the centre of local life.

The major route through the area significantly emphasised the pattern of development, including the establishment of Deptford Town Hall.

The area formed as a settlement at the meeting of three roads. This pattern of major routes has clear historical origins and in layout has not changed for at least 200 years.
