Authority City of York Council
Date assigned 01 January 1979
Date last amended


Wheldrake conservation area was designated in 1979. It concentrates upon the historic Main Street, and its continuation as Church Lane, and the 'back lanes' established as part of the medieval field pattern. In the conservation area the parish church and 21 buildings are listed, a notable proportion for a village of this size. The Church of St Helen has a 14th century west tower and an 18th century apse. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The surviving medieval pattern and its reflection in the form and layout of buildings 2) The strong linear and cohesive character of the Main Street and Church Lane 3) The rich legacy of historic buildings and local vernacular details, creating with the street pattern, a distinct sense of place
