Monument details

HER Number:1295
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Possible prehistoric activity at Tatton village


Excavations at Tatton Old Hall in 1983 identified traces of three features interpreted as hearths. Scientific dating from one of the features indicated a Late Mesolithic date for the wood. This may, however, be the result of burning preserved prehistoric wood from the mere.
