|Name:||Tatton Old Hall Deserted Village|
Excavations at Tatton show that no new structures were erected on medieval settlement. Map evidence suggests that later buildings were grouped on those areas which had not attracted settlement in the 13th century. Construction of this last period of buildings on site was on land immediately adjacent to farmyard buildings of the Old Hall complex. The buildings were probably associated with the Old Hall and may have been elements in a range of farm buildings. Evidence suggests that the settlement had shrunk during the late med population decline and that construction of the Old Hall led to settlement drifting away from the 13th century.
This is part of a Scheduled Monument that is situated in the park of Tatton Hall on a plateau which lies above the west bank of the Tatton Mere Brook and is in three areas of protection. It includes the below ground remains of the medieval Old Hall, including a demolished wing, a medieval mill pond and dam to the south-west of the hall as well as prehistoric settlement remains.
