Heslington

Heslington is a village in the unitary authority of City of York in the north of England, south east of the centre of York, Yorkshire.

It was probably an Anglian[?] settlement and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It became a Conservation Area in 1969.

Heslington Hall[?] was built between 1565 and 1568 for Sir Thomas Eynns. In the 20th century it was owned by Lord Deramore, but is now the administrative headquarters for York University.
