Adwick-le-Street was designated a conservation area on 6 January 1992. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.
To view the location of the conservation area please go to the Heritage Map.
Adwick-le-Street is a rural settlement that has expanded with suburban developments from the twentieth century and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The conservation area is based on the old settlement located around the church of St. Lawrence. It is linear in character and stretches along Village Street with a spur along Church Lane; the latter was the main road to Carcroft before the village centre was bypassed by the building of Doncaster Lane. To either side of the built-up areas that make up the 'main street' are two green areas, that to the west being the recreational open space of The Park and to the east is an open field to the mill leat. There are several archaeological sites within these green areas, including the site of Adwick Hall within The Park.
Limestone was the traditional material, which is rendered on some buildings, but there is also some brick. 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 Park.
Within the conservation area there are four listed structures. These can be viewed on the map as well as on the list in the Downloads and Resources section. The cross in the churchyard as well as being listed is also a scheduled monument.
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.
