The moated site at Newbold Verdon is situated on the western edge of the village less than 100m from St James's Church. A post-medieval hall is situated a few metres to the north of the site.The moated area measures 90m x 100m overall and encloses a square island measuring 65m x 65m on the west, south and east sides with an infilled northern arm. The three arms are an average of 10m wide and are mostly water-filled except the northern parts of the western and eastern arms. The outer bank on the southern and western sides is up to 1m high and 6-8m wide.A small excavation in 1981 suggested that the northern infilled arm was still in existence when the hall to the north was built about 1680. Finds of medieval roof tile indicate the remains of a manor house within the moat island.
