Description

The Nether Poppleton Conservation Area was designated in June 1993. It includes the historic village core around St Everlida's Church and Manor Farm, Church Lane and Main Street. St. Everlida's Church (GII*) is 12th century in origin. There are also several other 18th century listed buildings within this area. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The genuinely rural character of Manor Farm and St Everlida's Church and the historic associations with the origins of the village. 2) The continuity of Church Lane and Main Street, linking areas of historic and rural character through a series of curves and changes in level, revealing a pleasant sequence of views. 3) The landscape element - trees and grass verges- and the way they unify areas of difference character. 4) The traditional relationship between Nether Poppleton and the river which, with the cluster of historic buildings, keeps a sense of identity for the village, bearing in mind the extensive suburban development which has taken place.
