An historic buildings assessment of Heworth Croft in York (NGR SE 6102 526 1) was undertaken by the Historic Buildings Section of Field Archaeologist Specialists Ltd, on behalf of Mike Griffiths and Associates for Bellway Homes. The site contained the main building of Heworth Croft and associated outbuildings, including the Coach House and Stables, and the wider garden landscape with formal walled garden and summerhouse. A combination of photographic recording and written description was caffied out on 3rd April 2003 in order to highlight any features of architectural or historical importance. The assessment revealed that Heworth Croft represents two phases of development. Significant evidence for an earlier late Georgian structure has been retained within the service wing and extemal Coach House. This original structure was largely replaced in the 1840s to reflect similar regeneration elsewhere in Heworth Green, and the present building is an important example of early Victorian Italiante architecture, with much of the original layout and intemal fixtures still visible. However, the building was also subject to late Victorian intervention, particularly with the gradual fomatisation of the gardens within its extensive grounds.
