Normanton on the Wolds

Information and a map of Normanton on the Wolds Conservation Area.

The Lawns, looking towards Back Lane.This small Conservation Area contains four Listed Buildings and was designated in 1990 as part of the Borough Council’s proposals to create ten new Conservation Areas.

Normanton is a small, secluded village with a fairly simple plan but interest is provided by the presence of a back lane. This very green village was formerly on the main road to Melton (the village is now by-passed) and contains a succession of large houses set well back in their own grounds.

From the northern end of Old Melton Road, past the small green and around the bend, all the way down to The Plough Inn, a continuous enclosed feeling is provided by red brick walls, tall hedgerows, verges and mature trees which also gives the village a unity of character. This continuity provides the village with its unified character.

The boundary of the Normanton-on-the-Wolds Conservation Area was reviewed and formally extended on 8 September 2009.
