St. Ann's Area

In 2012, FSARG conducted a desktop and non-intrusive field survey, with the aim of collating information to construct a chronological narrative of the area now known as the St Ann’s estate, and in doing so, to identify possible areas for future investigation. The area of research lies along the path of the Westbrook Valley, to the south and east of the Davington plateau.. The area has seen a number of development phases over the years including possible Medieval watermills, gunpowder manufacturing, a stately home, watercress beds, and the current housing estate.
