Information and a map of Flintham Conservation Area.
This is the largest of Rushcliffe's 27 Conservation Areas at 144.2 hectares, and it also contains the most Listed Buildings and structures - a total of 38. The boundary of the Flintham Conservation Area was reviewed and formally extended on the 9 December 2008.
While the village form itself is very compact, the site as a whole includes the magnificent and extensive parkland of Flintham Hall (late eighteenth century) to the south and west, presenting fine views from the Fosse Way.
A very well kept village of 730 people, it was designated a Conservation Area in 1972 and enjoys a rare consistency of materials and design of buildings. The use of stone on the lower halves of the mainly red brick and pantile buildings is a typical detail of south Nottinghamshire.
Its narrow streets are almost continuously defined by either buildings or walls, creating an enclosed feeling and a sequence of views as one progresses through the village. The 'dog-leg' bend on Main Street and the curve in Inholms Road are examples of its distinctive village approaches.
