Notes

The earthwork and buried remains of a medieval moated site situated 440 metres south west of Lindridge Fields Farm. It has external dimensions of 105 metres north west-south east and 116 metres north east-south west and includes inner and outer moat ditches. The outer moat measures up to 12 metres wide. It has been mostly infilled, although the north western corner remains water-filled, but the moat ditches are considered to survive as buried features. The inner moat arms are water-filled and average 12 metres in width. In the mid-19th century the inner moat was drained and six, early 14th century, pottery vessels were recovered. The moated island, which is square in plan, is slightly raised above the surrounding ground surface. Scheduled.
