Helton Conservation Area

Why is Helton special?

Helton is one of a string of settlements within the Lowther Valley which have attractive architectural and historic character. This includes:

View of Helton village
  • the grouping of linear frontages of buildings around a green
  • a location on the valley side with extensive views
  • surviving field patterns of medieval strip farming surrounding the village
  • six listed buildings of special architectural and historic character
  • a number of other notable groups of historic buildings

Although modern development has undoubtedly left its mark on the village there is still significant character remaining that is worth conserving.
