Notes

Earthworks of a Medieval moat. Field investigations in 1977 found it to be D-shaped in plan, complete on all but the northwest side which had been filled in. It encloses a level platform measuring 38 metres by 40 metres which rises up to 1.5 metres above the bottom of the now silted, but damp ditch between 8 metres to 11 metres wide. The inner edge of the northwest side was discernible as a scarp up to 0.2m high. No causewayed entrance or internal structures were recorded.
