Description

Elvington conservation area was designated in 1990. It includes the village Main Street and Green, Church Lane and the meadows between the River Derwent and the village, which are an integral part of its character. Elvington Hall is the village's most imposing individual building and is Grade II* listed. It is thought to be Eliazabethan in origin. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The street pattern, its relationship to topography and the attractive balance of low density development 2) The Village Green 3) The pastoral qualities of the Meadows and their strong association with the overall character of the village 4) The well wooded setting of the village and its strongly rural character 5) The attractive sequence of views constantly unfolding within and around the village
