See our for general information on Listed Buildings, Scheduled Monuments and Conservation Areas.

Authority City of York Council
Date assigned Monday, January 20, 1969
Date last amended Thursday, May 13, 2004


Heslington Conservation Area was designated in January 1969 and included the two streets known as Main Street and Heslington Lane. On 13th May 2004 the area was significantly extended to include the back lanes and paddocks and the wider setting of Heslington Hall. The Conservation Area has a richly caried character with Heslington Hall as the centrepiece. A Conservation Area Appraisal was carried out in 2009. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The magnificance of Heslington Hall at the hub of the village 2) The way in which Heslington retains its own identity, with a rich heritage of streets, vernacular buildings, trees and open spaces. 3) The linear street qualities of Heslington Lane and Main Street 4) The charm of the rural setting of the south-west outer edge of Main Street and the visual unity of the street itself.
