Information and a map of Thrumpton Conservation Area.
The boundary of this large Conservation Area includes all the built-up area of the village together with the historic parkland of Thrumpton Hall. Originally designated in 1972, it includes 19 Listed Buildings or structures. Against a backdrop of high trees, the old village and street is predominantly fronted by hedges on one side and walls, cottages and some farm out-buildings on the other; All Saints’ Church and The Gate House to Thrumpton Hall marking the two ends.
The Grade II* (Grade two star) church comprises 13th and 15th century architecture. It was extensively restored in 1871. There is a monument dated 1669 to Gervase Pigot II, one of the family who owned the Thrumpton estate after the Powdrill family had been dispossessed of it following their part in the Gunpowder Plot. Within the Churchyard is a separately Listed Grade II font of the 13th century, placed there after the Victorian restoration, and the graves of family members of Lord Byron.
Set in splendid parkland, Thrumpton Hall (Grade I), dates back to 1617 and is a fine house of mellowed brickwork.
The boundary of the Conservation Area was reviewed and formally extended on 9th March 2010 to include all of the properties on Church Lane and the full extent of Thrumpton Hall's parkland.
