Hooton Pagnell conservation area

Hooton Pagnell was designated a conservation area on 22 June 1970. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.

To view the location of the conservation area please go to the Heritage Map.

Hooton Pagnell is a rural settlement that is situated on a limestone escarpment and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is linear in character and stretches along Main Street with a spur along Clayton Lane. Built as an estate village, it originally comprised several farms situated on the main street. Its agricultural characteristics can still be seen by the many yards opening directly from the main road with small or no gardens. Many buildings contain 17th century or earlier elements and there is relatively little modern infill.

Buildings are mainly simple in form. Dwellings comprise mostly of small cottages with gable ends facing the road, or occasional larger buildings with larger frontages, although still retaining cottage style characteristics of two storey and end on to the road. Limestone was the traditional material. Principle roof materials are slate and clay pantiles. Limestone boundary walls are an important and extensive feature of the conservation area. The conservation area is well endowed with mature trees particularly in the grounds of Hooton Pagnell Hall and the churchyard.

Within the conservation area there are 29 listed structures, including the Grade I listed Church of All Saints and Grade II* listed Hall. A list of these and a map showing their location can be viewed in the Downloads and Resources section on this page. The crosses in the churchyard and in the centre of the village, as well as being listed, are also scheduled monuments.

The above description of the conservation area is only a brief overview and a full appraisal will be carried out that will consider in more depth the features that make up the significance of the area.
