Full Description

Post-medieval period features comprised of ditches associated with Flixton Hall and its Park, which was established early in the 17th century. However, these clearly overlay an earlier rectilinear field system of unknown date. Other features relating to Flixton Hall and its Park comprised a large pit, thought to be a dew-pond associated with a deer park, and the wall bases and demolition debris from a barn.
In addition, a series of backfilled military trenches were recorded that related to training activities carried out during the First World War. Other associated features included latrine pits that had later been used to dispose of ash and rubbish.
