Date assigned 01 January 1973
Date last amended


Skelton Conservation Area was designated in 1973. It includes The Green, Skelton Hall and Skelton Manor which form the historic core of the village. The Church of St. Giles is a Grade I listed building dating from c.1240. Skelton Manor (GII*) has mid 16th century origins. There are also many other GII listed buildings within this area. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) A combination of interesting topography, street pattern and varied buildings give Skelton its attractive, rural character. 2) The qualities of individual buildings in their own grounds in contrast with cottages fronting onto the street. 3) The way that boundary walls, hedges, grass verges and roadside trees lead naturally from one part of the village to the other.
