Notes

A medieval moated site, and area of ridge and furrow cultivation remains and its associated field boundary ditches. The moated site occupies a low lying position with land rising to the north and west. The moat defines a rectangular island, which measures 50 metres north-south and 58 metres east-west. The moat retains water. The arms are on average 8 metres wide and survive to a depth of between 1 metre and 1.5 metre, with the exception of the southern arm which has been largely infilled and on its outer side has been damaged by ploughing. Crossing the island are a series of cultivation ridges, aligned east-west. The remnants of the strip cultivation system - ridge and furrow - that survive to the north of the moated site are bounded by former field ditches to the north and west which connect with the boundaries of the present-day fields. Scheduled.
