Stevenson Square conservation area lies on the north-eastern edge of the city centre of Manchester. It is one of a group of three designated by us in February 1987; the others are Shudehill and Smithfield. Stevenson Square is the most easterly of the city centre conservation areas, and was subsequently extended in December 1987 to include houses on Lever Street and Bradley Street.
The original area is bounded by Oldham Street (a common boundary with the Smithfield conservation area), Great Ancoats Street (a common boundary with the Ancoats conservation area), Spear street, faraday Street, brewer Street, China Lane, Hilton Street, the rear of Back China Lane, Dale Street, Lena Street and Piccadilly. The extension to the conservation area is bounded by Spear Street, Houldsworth Street, Lever Street and Faraday Street.
