Date last amended


Towthorpe conservation area was designated in 2001. The area includes Towthorpe Moat and Low Farmhouse (GII listed). A Conservation Area Appraisal was carried out in 2011 - no boundary changes were suggested. Towthorpe village is an unchanged group of farm buildings in their countryside setting. It contains a number of 19th century or earlier brick buildings of uniform scale, some of which are houses which have later been converted into agricultural dwellings. The area has a distinctive countryside character, reminiscent of the rural parts of the Vale of York.
