Notes

Medieval homestead moat shown by excavation to date from the 12th century. It is up to 13 metres wide and 4 metres deep. It encloses an island 42 by 22 metres across. Maps show two fishponds to the north west which have now become infilled. The excavations found materials indicating buildings of 14th to 16th century date, these were demolished and the foundations grubbed up in 1870-80. Scheduled.
