Askham Richard conservation area was designated in 1975. It embraces the whole of the village, reflecting its unity of character. A Village Design Statement was prepared by the local community in 2005. Many elements of the rural village survive such as the narrow plots of land extending back from the street with outbuildings behind the frontage properties reached by little lanes and yards. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The unspoilt nature of the village envelope and the direct traditional relationship with its rural setting 2) The picturesque qualities of the Green 3) The wooded setting afforded by the grounds of Askham Grange and other tree groups
