Conservation Area: Upper Poppleton Conservation Area (Conservation Area 16)

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

Authority City of York Council
Date assigned Friday, January 1, 1993
Date last amended Thursday, December 16, 2004


Upper Poppleton Conservation Area was designated in 1993. It embraced the village green and its approaches along Hodgson Lane and Main Street. In 2004 the area was extended while 1-5 Grove Gardens were removed from the conservation area. These are several listed buildings dating to the 18th century within the conservation area. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The essentially rural village quality of the green, with its indivdual triangular shape and the subsidary greens leading from it. 2) The attractive groups of vernacular buildings, sufficent to create a cohesive overall character and a valuable focal point in an area that has undergone extensive suburban expansion 3) The rural setting that remains to the south-east and north-west of the village core.
