Stainton conservation area

Stainton was designated a conservation area on 17 August 1992. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.

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

Stainton has an unusual street plan dictated by the topography and there has been significant expansion of the settlement in the last decades of the 20th century through the construction of low density detached housing. The conservation area represents a portion of the village around the Grade II* listed Church of St. Winifred and includes the historic buildings in the immediate area.

There is a reference to land at Stainton in the Domesday Book and the church has early medieval origins suggesting that the settlement is of long standing, though it does not seem to have been of any size. The character of the conservation area derives from random rubble coursed limestone agricultural or domestic buildings on narrow unverged lanes, bounded with random coursed rubble limestone walls. Roofs are generally clay pantile on these buildings.

Within the conservation area there are three listed structures all associated with the church. A list of these and a map showing their location can be viewed in the Downloads and Resources section. The grade II listed Stainton Hall Farmhouse and Holme Farm both lie outside the conservation area.

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.
