A medieval moated site immediately west of Skreens Lodge. The moated site includes a rectangular island which measures a maximum of 58 metres east-west by 30 metres north-south. The island is contained by a moat measuring a maximum of 1.5 metres in depth and up to 5 metres wide on the west, south, and east sides. The majority of the northern arm of the moat, except for a 20 metre section at its eastern end, survives as a buried feature. A leat extends a short distance to the east from rhe north east corner. Both the 1800 Estate map of Willingdale Doe and Shellow Bowells and the 1837 tithe map of Willingdale depict the moat with a greater part of the north side missing, suggesting that the northern arm was filled in prior to 1800. Scheduled.
