Full Description

SK 310 304. A large close, called the Paddock in the Enclosure Award, lies adjacent to the village street of Findern. It contains raised earthen formations which appear to indicate former buildings of considerable extent. Probably the site of Findern Hall or Manor House, '… an assumption strengthened by the information I received from an aged native that it was here the celebrated "Findern Flowers" grew'. (1) Possible foundations visible on an aerial photograph of 1957. (2) The area is being developed. There is no evidence of foundations and the contractors have not met any such features. (3)
