Notes

Earthwork remains of a medieval moated site. An inner bank runs around three sides of the moated island and there is a single outer bank on the south east side and a double outer bank to the north west. The island is currently accessed via the northern corner but traces of a possible causeway are visible at the western corner, suggesting a second entrance. Faint earthworks represent the remains of buildings on the moated island. A short distance to the south east is a building platform containing the foundations of a two-roomed structure.
