Marr was designated a conservation area on 7 January 1991. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.

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

Marr is a small agricultural street village mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is linear in nature and stretches along Barnsley Road. Marr developed as a settlement serving several farms. The characteristic of the village today still rest with two remaining working farms - Manor Farm and Marr Hall Farm. Marr consists of large imposing detached dwellings, with smaller farm cottages and semi-detached houses set along the road, and some that are set quite a long way back from the highway contrasting with historic farm-buildings and odd gable ended row of cottages that are set hard up to the road.

Limestone was the traditional material, which is rendered on some buildings. 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 endowed with mature trees, especially within the two areas of 'Hills and Holes' that exist at both east and west ends of the settlement.

Within the conservation area there are six listed structures. These can 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.

The above description of the conservation area is only a brief overview subject to a full appraisal that will consider in more depth the features that make up the significance of the area.
