Cyprus Road, Mapperley Park
A typical street in Mapperley Park.

The Mapperley Park and Alexandra Park Conservation Area was first designated in July 1976 and extended in December 1976. This designation recognises its historic significance as an early Edwardian suburb built within a mature parkland setting. The large Conservation Area lies between Mansfield Road and Woodborough Road, extending to the east of Woodborough Road to include Alexandra Park, with its northern boundary generally defined by Private Road and its southern boundary defined by Mapperley Road.
Mapperley Park and Alexandra Park developed as an exclusive suburb for the Edwardian middle classes. Speculatively built and completed over a period of over fifty years, properties display a range of styles from the late 19th through to the mid 20th century. The Conservation Area includes many good quality examples of the range of Vernacular Revival styles that defined the late Victorian and Edwardian periods; with Gothic and other Victorian styles on the edges of the area contrasting with the more homely individualistic styles of the 20th century Vernacular Revival that comprise the core of the estate.
