The villages of East Ayton and West Ayton are separated by the River Derwent and the conservation area includes the historic core of both settlements. The majority of the area lies within the North York Moors National Park but a small section at the southern end is under the control of Scarborough Borough Council.
This report contains an assessment of the conservation area based on fieldwork carried out in April 2013. The scope of the visual inspection was limited to the buildings and areas that were visible from the public footpaths and highways.
Due to the large filesize of the document it may take a little while to open.
