Notes about this historic site

1 A hollow depression, 120m long and 40m wide, in a field to the south of Admington Hall. Presumably the site of a pond attached to the manor house, it has been damaged by landscaping in its northern end but it is possible that there was an island and dam in this part of the pond. A hollow wooden pipe was found slightly to the north some years ago and may have formed part of a dam construction. There is a slighter, narrower pond to the south.
