Notes

Remains of Stanwardine sub-circular Medieval moated site and associated fishpond situated at the base of a slope close to Stanwardine Hall. The site is considered to be the centre of the manor of Stanwardine which was in the estate of the Fitz Alans and held by Richard de Stanwardine in the late 12th century. The moat is water filled and surrounds an oval shaped island. At the western end of the northern arm are the remains of a probable Medieval footbridge constructed of red sandstone. The rectangular water-filled fishpond is located to the south of the site. A dam defines its northern end where it is connected to the moat by a leat.
