Sports, leisure & the Arts Withington Conservation Area


The Withington conservation area is situated approximately three miles south of the city centre of Manchester. It consists principally of a linear shopping centre with some nearby housing at a point where one of the main radial road routes from the city centre branches: the junction of Wilmslow Road, Palatine road, Burton road and Parsonage Road.

The conservation area was designated by the City Council in July 1983, and the boundary is composed mainly of property boundaries rather than streets, but includes Tatton View in the south and Withington Public Library in the north.
