Crops, aerial photographs and Doncaster's hidden heritage
Parks and Gardens of Local Historic Interest were identified as part of the Doncaster Unitary Development Plan:
The Borough of Doncaster contains a rich archaeological and historical heritage reflecting its long history of settlement. In some cases the historic town centres have been continuously occupied since the Roman Period and are a major archaeological resource whilst evidence is growing of the extensive early settlement in the rural areas of the Borough.
Parks and gardens are registered in order to identify those sites that are of either special or local interest. From town gardens and public parks to the great country estates, such places are an important, distinctive and much cherished part of our inheritance.

A conservation area is an 'area of special architectural or historic interest, the character of which is desirable to preserve or enhance'. It is the character of the area rather than the presence of individual buildings, which justifies designation of a conservation area.
If you are planning a development it pays to seek archaeological advice from the Council's advisers, the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service.
Woodlands was designated a conservation area on 29 June 1979.
Wadworth was designated a conservation area on 8 July 1991. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.
