Notes

A nearly-square Medieval moated site. Field investigations in 1971 found it to be water-filled at the northwest corner, but elsewhere dry and in fair condition. Moat-like extensions from the north and south corners suggest a formerly moated outer enclosure to the southeast, the perimeter of which is now perpetuated by a hedgerow with a stong inner ditch. A rectangular pond, within the moat, is fed by a spring and may have been a fish-pond.
