Copmanthorpe is one of a small cluster of villages surrounded by countryside in close proximity to York on the old Tadcaster road.
Our village has a distinct landscape setting characterised mainly by large prime arable fields bounded by native hedgerows and trees, all of which lie within the Green Belt.
The two village greens are important in providing a “green heart” for Copmanthorpe. These public spaces have a particular social and community value. There are numerous ‘green corridors’ throughout the village that link larger green areas for wildlife.
Low Green is without pavements and is used for the village May Day Street Fair. Memorial Green, with a pavement to one side, serves as a popular meeting point and includes the village War Memorial.
Both spaces are characterised by well-kept grass and mature trees and are enclosed by characterful buildings.
