The Princecess of Wales Public House is a prominent building within the Conservation Area, both in views along Lea Bridge Road (from the east and west) and along the River Lea. Both the Lea Bridge Road frontage and the river banks contain important groups of trees which are prominent in views into and out of the Conservation Area. The chimneys and distinctive gable to the former carbonic acid gas works are important features within views around the Conservation Area. The low scale of development within the Conservation Area is especially evident in views along the small streets and across the open landscape areas surrounding the Lea Bridge Conservation Area.
