Notes

Medieval moat and associated small fields. The moat is roughly square, aligned north south and measures approximatly 50m by 55m. The moat is now mainly dry and measures up to 12m wide and 1m deep. The northern arm of the moat is part of a majdrainage chanel called the Marshland Sewer. Fragments of roof tiles and masonary have been found on the eastern side of the island indicating the presence of a building. A roughly circular hollow on the west side of the island may represent a pond. To the west and south of the moat are associated closes these are small fields formed by now dry ditches. Scheduled.
