Beauchief Hall Conservation Area is located approximately 5.5km south west of the City Centre. It can be approached from the south along Beauchief Lane or the Hall from the north, along Beauchief Abbey Lane.
The land is in private ownership but a number of footpaths pass along the edge of the Conservation Area.
The Conservation Area is made up of 2 main elements:
- Beauchief Hall, a Grade II* listed 17th Century country house.
- Beauchief Hall's formal gardens are registered in English Heritage's Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.
Other things that justify the designation include:
- Pegge's Cottage and outbuildings, Grade II listed
- the 'Fir Walk'
- ornamental ponds
- prevalent use of stone to build
- mature trees and a woodland setting
- views toward the Peak District
- possible further remains of Beauchief Abbey
Date of designation
The conservation area was designated on 18 December 1969.
Conservation Area Appraisal
After a period of public consultation we adopted both the Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Proposals on 19 March 2007. This means they are now a material consideration in deciding planning applications in the area.
