Information and a map of Wysall Conservation Area.

View of the Church of Holy Trinity from Wymeswold Road, with Young's Forge in the foreground. The 19 hectare Conservation Area includes nearly all the built-up area of the village and its population of 320 people. It contains 5 Listed Buildings, and was designated a Conservation Area in 1990.

Set in a beautiful churchyard, the Grade I Church of the Holy Trinity is part Norman and part 14th century. The lovely font - a round bowl on five shafts - dates from the 13th century. Beneath the small 600 year old spire, the belfry can be reached via a medieval ladder of a similar age.

Other notable buildings within this picturesque and compact village are the part Elizabethan timber framed Manor House which dates from the 16th and 17th century, and the red brick and pantile cottage on Widmerpool Road known as The Nook, the end gable wall of which is inscribed "1718" in blue bricks. Both these buildings are Grade II listed.

The boundary of the Conservation Area was reviewed and formally extended on 7 September 2010.
