Notes

A medieval moated site in a low lying position 100 metres north east of Wolverton Manor. The moat, which is now water filled after part re-excavation, is rectangular, the longer axis aligned north west-south east. A level earthwork platform adjacent to the north east side of the moat appears with its construction or maintenance. The moat surrounds a rectangular platform 50 metres by 25 metres within which, in its northern corner, geophysical survey has revealed traces of a rectangular structure. This is likely to have been the building succeeded by Wolverton Manor, in the time of Elizabeth I. Scheduled.
