Notes

A medieval moated site situated on level ground which slopes gently away to the east. The moat arms, which retain water, are about 10 metres wide. The moat defines a roughly square island that measures about 36 metres by 40 metres. Material excavated from the moat was used to raise the surface of the island by about 0.5 metres above the level of the surrounding land. Scheduled.
