Record Details

NHER Number:7291
Type of record:Monument
Name:Possible medieval moat


A curved moat was noted here in 1969. A site visit in 1976 showed it had become a curved carr but the owners of the nearby Manor House stated it was a moat. It is unclear whether this feature is a medieval moat or not, as the Ordnance Survey records it as a drainage channel.
