High Melton conservation area

High Melton was designated a conservation area on 7 March 1983. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.

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

High Melton is a rural settlement that has slightly expanded with suburban developments from the twentieth century and the settlement is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The conservation area is based on High Melton Hall (now Doncaster College) and its grounds and the adjoining settlement that stretches along Doncaster Road.

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 grounds of the hall.

Within the conservation area there are eight listed structures. A list of these and a map showing their location can be viewed in the Downloads and Resources section on this page. In the southern part of the conservation area lie two scheduled monuments, one relating to the deserted medieval village of Wildthorpe, the other is the ice house to High Melton Hall.

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.
