Medieval moat and fishponds surviving as earthworks. Site of the 14th century manor house of Burstwick, recorded as standing in the 18th century. The manor passed to the Crown through escheatment in 1274 and was granted away in 1355. Records show that work was carried out on the site at various times between 1277 and 1354. The manorial buildings were arranged around a courtyard and were mostly timber framed. They included great and little halls, two chapels, an outer and inner gatehouse, kitchens, cellars, a buttery, bakery, and brewhouse.
