Notes

Medieval moat at Inkberrow village Millenium Green, with associated possible fishponds and ridge and furrow. The island is 34m by 27m and surounded by a water filled moat 6m wide and 2m deep, with a low external bank. Traces of a leat which fed the moat via a fishpond from the adjacent stream exist in the north east corner. The possible fishpond feature is irregular in shape and 14m in diameter. To the north is a further possible fishpond 60m by 20m. A leat from the stream feeds into its eastern side. A series of drainage ditches to the north and west collect surface water and define an enclosure at the north western corner of the moat. There have been alternative interpretations of the ponds as later features, possibly associated with brickearth pits of the early 18th century; though this interpretation is uncertain. The remains of ridge and furrow are located to the west and north of the moat and more fragmentarily to the east of the stream. Scheduled.
