Fairfield / Knight's Park Conservation area
Designation date: July 1985 and extended in September 1989
No of properties: 550
Area: 21.4 hectares

Designation summary
The special architectural and historic interest of this area can be described as: An early suburb of Kingston Town Centre comprising of houses of various sizes and designs dating mainly from the 1820s to 1900 around Fairfield, a recreational open space since 1855.

Historic background summary
In 1850 this conservation area was farmland and open meadows until Victorian villas were built on Orchard Road in 1860. Following the opening of Kingston Railway Station in 1863, the value of land increased rapidly and during the 1860’s and 1870’s, houses were built on Fairfield North, Knights Park and Mill Street with Fairfield Recreation Ground opening in 1889. Unlike today, in the 19th century, the Hogsmill River was deeper and faster flowing and a lack of bridges slowed the rate of development in this area. It was not until the 1890’s that Springfield Road Bridge was built, connecting the southern and northern halves of Grove. Today the Hogsmill River to the south and the A307 encapsulates the area creating a tranquil environment with houses which are rich in architectural detail and townscape character.
