Notes

Earthworks of a Medieval moated site measuring 70 metres by 40 metres. The moat is seasonally wet except in the southeast where it has been infilled. No entrances are present. Within the interior are two islands, the northern example is thought to be the site of the main house, with ancillary buildings housed on the southern island. The site is associated with the manor of Moynes, held by yhe le Moyne family from the mid 13th century until 1315.
