Protection Categories

This page lists the 'protection categories' that have been officially assigned (by Historic England) to some of the sites / structures located within (or otherwise associated with) the Settle-Carlisle Railway Conservation Area (SCRCA). To view or hide a definition, click / tap on the relevant protection category.

Most of the historic structures within the SCRCA contribute significantly to the 'group value' of all or part of the conservation area. Official 'conservation area consent' is required (from the relevant Local Authority) prior to the alteration or removal / demolition of any historic structure within the SCRCA and conservation area legislation means that there is a presumption in favour of conservation.
