Authority City of York Council
Date assigned 01 January 1978
Date last amended


Copmanthorpe was designated a conservation area in 1978. It is a compact area encompassing Main Street, St Giles' Church and Low Green which form the historic core of the village. The area has a linear street pattern created by Main Street, Church Lane and Low Green. St. Giles' Church (GII) dates from the 12th century and occupies a pivotal position in the village. Its small church yard adds to the feelings of a rural settlement. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The contrast of narrow winding streets and enclaves of space, resulting in an attractive sequence of views 2) The ways in which pockets of distinct charm and rural character survive despite the village's changed role 3) The contribution made by larger properties set in well-treed gardens
