Clapton Square conservation area

The Clapton Square conservation area was designated in 1969 and extended in 1991 and 2000.

It is dominated by St. John’s Church, built in 1792-97, and St John’s Gardens, together with terraces of listed buildings on Clapton Square which is protected by Act of Parliament as a London Square. Sutton Place also contains well preserved listed buildings dating from the late eighteenth century in the south side, with pairs of early mid-nineteenth century houses to the north.
