Notes

Remains of a medieval moated site and associated field system. The moated island is roughly circular and stands about 1 metre above the surrounding ground level. An external bank runs around the western half of the moat. The south eastern section of the moat has been infilled. Documentary evidence indicates that a house stood on the site in 1621. This building was replaced in the early 19th century by a group of cottages which were demolished in 1964, though their floors remain. A well located in the northern part of the moated island supplied water. A raised causeway provided access to the site, running south eastwards across the adjacent field and crossing the southern moat arm. A cobbled pathway, probably constructed in the 19th century, overlies the causeway. The remains of ridge and furrow are visible to the south and east of the moat. The north western part of the moat is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs.
