Brief description of site

Barnfield has a house and grounds with a small park set in the junction of Hilton Lane and Bury New Road. There are open fields to the south. By the 1890s, the area to the south had been developed and a number of detached houses set in their own grounds had been built. The house has been demolished but parts of the grounds are absorbed into a small park.
