Osbaston Conservation Area

Overview

Osbaston cottages

The conservation area of Osbaston was designated by the council in October 1992. This tiny settlement is characterised by a stand of fine trees set in rolling countryside.

Hall Lane is a narrow single lane track which enters the village from the west passing Osbaston Hall, a fine Georgian House set in open parkland. To the south it is lined with tall mature trees which frame the roadside in a tunnel effect. It continues slowly winding its way towards the junction with Osbaston Lane. This is the heart of the village and is enclosed by the buildings of Home Farm, White Boar and Bloomfield Barns with the village notice board and the red cast iron post box at its centre.

Osbaston Lane from the south and Goatham Lane from the northeast, although slightly sunken, are more open to the countryside and the sky which gives a brighter appearance to the buildings.

The most important building in the settlement is Osbaston Hall which is Grade ll* listed. It consists of the principle building and the stable block, which is now partly converted into a dwelling and a small pavilion.
