More information : SE 4714 0855. Old Hall [G.T] Site of [T.I.] Moat. [G.T.]. (1)

The manor of Frickley appears to have come to the family of Anne
by the marriage of Sir William Anne with Alice, daughter of
Robert Haringel, sometime in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377).
Their old house at Frickley was demolished by Anthony Wharton
(? in the 18th cent.) only the moat being left, he then erected
a new house (presumably the present Fickley Hall - ST 4608)
The old house was extant c.1685 when visited by Dr. Nathaniel
Johnston who describes coats of arms, and an inscription on
wood over a stable door which read "God save Martin Anne and
Frances his wife 1572" (a). (2)

No confirmation of the published site Old Hall was obtained
during field investigation. The moat still water filled has
been extended on its southern side to form an ornamental lake.
An early 17th C stone building situated at SE 47100860 probably
represents part of the former outbuildings to the Old Hall. It is
now amalgamated with the modern buildings of Park Farm and
used as a cow shed. There are no inscriptions visible. See
G.P. AO/60/99/1 for S.W. aspect. (3)

Condition unchanged. (4)

The medieval moat (extended in the post medieval period to form an ornamental lake) and some ditches (possibly indicating robbed out foundations to the former manor house) are visible as earthworks on air photographs. In the vicinity there are also earthworks of a post medieval trackway and a ha ha belonging to the present Frickley Hall. They are centred at SE 4699 0848.

The ditches are on the site of Frickley Old Hall at SE 4714 0855. Around them and extending further to the south (as described by authority 3). To the west of the ornamental lake there is a possible trackway and a ha ha.
