Notes

The remains of two medieval moats north of Grimston Garth. The larger moated site is thought to have been constructed some time between the 12th and 14th centuries and was occupied by a high status manor house. The smaller moat to the north west is believed to have served an ornamental function and to have contained pleasure gardens or orchards. A number of earthwork features are visible to the east of the main moat, including the remains of enclosures and fishponds. Grimston manor house burned down in the mid 17th century and the moated site was subsequently occupied by a farm complex which stood on the site of an earlier building known as Grimston Hall. During the late 18th and 19th centuries, the moats lay within the landscaped park which formed the grounds of Grimston Garth, a country house built in the 1780s.
