Full description

Moat?
L shaped pond shown on (S1). (S2) shows an extra wet ditch running east to west across the central space to stop at the road, and that the feature was connected to stream on east. Seems too large for an industrial feature but perhaps fishponds of priory across road?
E. Rose (NAU), 3 December 1979.

30 April 1980. Visit.
Part used as allotments part wooded and overgrown. No evidence on ground.
E. Rose (NAU), 30 April 1980.
