Sports, leisure & the Arts Didsbury St James Conservation Area


Didsbury St James conservation area, nine kilometres south of the city centre, was designated in November 1970.

It is centred on the historical core of Didsbury, at the junction of Wilmslow Road and Stenner Lane, and covers an extensive area. The boundaries include Ford Lane, Didsbury Park and Sandhurst Road to the north, the backs of properties on Parrs Wood Road to the south-east, a ditch draining the Mersey flood plain to the south-west and the River Mersey to the west.
