Aldington Conservation Area Appraisal


The appraisal specifies the special interest of Aldington that justifies its designation as a Conservation Area, the reasons being:

  • Its long history, evident in the surviving layout of the village, its buildings and setting.
  • Its survival as a reminder of the rural history of the immediate area, contrasting with nearby modern infrastructure and development.
  • The number and quality of historic buildings arranged along its roads and lanes, along with the survival of historic fabric and detailing.
  • The survival of a clear demonstration of historic social hierarchy within the village, evident in the size, design and siting of buildings, eg Manor Court and The Manor.
  • The proximity of the Mill Pond and the presence of former mill buildings.
  • The significant contribution of the natural environment in trees, gardens, open spaces, grass verges, hedges, streams, ford and mill pond.

The Conservation Area boundary was drawn to reflect this special interest.  The north end of Village Street, the east end of Main Street, Chapel Lane and Mill Lane are all included in the Conservation Area.

The Aldington Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan were adopted by Wychavon District Council as a document for planning purposes, Minute 87 of the Executive Board meeting of 10th April 2019 refers.
