We designated the Carnfield Hall Conservation Area (77kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance on the 8th November 1989.
It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest is due to the Grade II* listed Carnfield Hall and its former coach house which is Grade II listed. In addition, Carnfield Wood Farm plus a large area of surrounding estate landscape and woodland, which has been associated with Carnfield Hall since at least the 16th century, is of historic interest and forms the setting for Carnfield Hall.
We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (2.46MB) for the area.
The document defines the special character and appearance of the area by assessing the built form, and landscape value and provides guidance on the implementation of certain saved policies in the Bolsover District Local Plan and formulates management proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Carnfield Hall Conservation Area.
The implementation of the management of the conservation area is set out in our Historic Environment Scheme.
