A medieval moated site at Moat Farm. The site is thought to represent the manor of Bures or Bowers, recorded from the early 14th century. By 1575 the manor was known by the name of Bowers and by the early 20th century as Bowery Farm. The site comprises a water-filled moat enclosing a roughly rectangular island. Access to the island is via a causeway over the southern moat arm, believed to be original. Moat Farm, a 16th century, timber-framed building, Listed Grade II, stands on the moated island. This house is thought to have replaced an earlier building on the site. Moat scheduled.
