Doncaster - St George's conservation area

Doncaster - St George's was designated a conservation area on 15 September 1997.

The first appraisal of the conservation area was finalised in March 2009 after being out to consultation. This was reviewed in 2014 to take account of any significant changes that had occurred there since the original appraisal was carried out.

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

The conservation area is based around the church of St. George, which has recently been created a Minster and is to the north of Doncaster town centre adjoining the River Don. The area is rich in archaeology (it is the site of a former Roman fort and a later castle) and is a green 'oasis' in comparison with the rest of the town centre. However, due to demolitions occurring in the 1970s, mostly brought about by the creation of an inner bypass/dual-carriageway, the area has a deficit of built form.

Within the conservation area there are two listed structures which, with other significant buildings are described within the appraisal. The listed structures can also be viewed on the Heritage Map which gives the address, grade and reference number of the listed building. The reference number can be used to find the listing description for any individual listed building using the Historic England database
