Notes about this historic site

1 Packington Old Hall is a C17 building probably incorporating a much older house. Whether the house was moated or not is uncertain, but there is a long narrow pond E of it with a narrow dry ditch turning N at its E end.
2 There is no moat.
3 A waterfilled ditch approximately 40m long and 8m wide with a second ditch at a right angle to the SE end being approximately 22m long and 3m wide. Its proximity to the old hall may suggest that it was associated with the earlier house on the site.
