Notes

A Medieval moat is visible as earthworks on aerial photographs. The moat measures a maximum of 7m wide and extends over an area that measures 62m long by 78m wide. It completely surrounds a curvilinear probable building platform. The flow of water is controlled by 2 leats which extend to the west and north of moat. The site is thought to be that off the Medieval house built by William de Valence in 1253 and documented in 1324, but was probably in a state of disrepair by 1372. This moat is a scheduled monument.
