Notes

Site of a former homestead moat, probably medieval in origin. In the late 19th century the island also contained an ornamental garden and the remains of a stone ice-house. In 1986 the area around the moat was developed as part of a new housing estate. Trenches were examined but nothing seen. The moat is to be preserved within the garden of one of the houses.
