Newbold Verdon Conservation Area

Overview

Cottages Newbold Verdon

The conservation area of Newbold Verdon covers the historic core of the village, principally along Main Street, and was designated by the council in November 1989.

Newbold Verdon is of Norman origin relating to Bertram de Verdun, who had tenure of the village in the 12th century.

Over the years, Newbold Verdon has grown into a large thriving village, not picturesque and somewhat scattered layout.

The conservation area, which is approached from the north along Dragon Lane, from the south along Brascote Lane or from the east along Main Street, can be divided into four distinct areas:

  • Newbold Verdon Hall (Grade I listed)
  • St James Church (Grade II listed)
  • Main Street
  • The Old Rectory (Grade ll listed)

A church was first built in the late 12th century. However, the present church, St James, was rebuilt in 1898 in celebration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. The tower was erected much later in 1960.
