This is the 'deserted mediaeval village of Stock', listed in the Domesday Book and in origin, probably much earlier as the Roman road goes through the grounds to a ford across the Ribble. In the paddock & field are plough lines and 'tofts & crofts' - the outlines of houses and their gardens, quite visible as you drive towards the house from the A59. The rules are no digging deeper than 12 inches without permission from English Heritage so gardening is fine but installing new drains needs permission. And no dumping anything on the surface.
