Notes

A large sub-rectangular homestead moat situated on high ground, near Glebe Farm, measuring overall 80.0m. North- East to South-West x 70.0m transversely. The ditch averages 10.0m. wide and 1.5m. deep, the South-West and North-East arms are dry whilst the North-West and South-East arms are waterfilled from surface drainage. A causeway, probably original, at the East angle gives access to the interior. The island, which is at the same height as external levels, is covered by a coniferous plantation, and apart from a wooden barn shows no evidence of occupation.
