Full description

About 1730. 'In the Park of 24 acres northeast of the church'.
'A moated motte'.
(S1) gives a sketch plan showing a mound with the river on the east, and a moat on the southwest and north. This does not seem to fit the Ordnance Survey maps. It does not seem to conform to the carrs east of the church and may be somewhere north of these along the river.
E. Rose (NAU) 28 August 1980.
