Pott Shrigley conservation area under review

This is an archived press release

Friday 23 January 2015

Residents can give their views on a draft appraisal of the part of the Pott Shrigley conservation area which lies within the Peak District National Park.
There are 109 conservation areas in the Peak District National Park and these are periodically reviewed.

Pott Shrigley was designated a conservation area in 1979 to preserve and enhance the hamlet's special character and qualities.

Cultural heritage manager Ken Smith said: "I hope Pott Shrigley residents will take the opportunity to look at the appraisal document which covers the village's traditional architecture, history and special characteristics.

"The conservation area protects Pott Shrigley's heritage which dates back to Medieval times; its early development was probably connected to the establishment of the church in the 14th century, as well as Pott and Shrigley Halls.
"Historically, the village economy would have been based primarily on servicing the halls, agriculture, and later, quarrying and coal mining."
