Full description

L shaped pond on 6 inch Ordnance Survey map, perhaps part of a moat.

Ordnance Survey aerial photographs may show very faint outline of long narrow rectangle completing this, but it may only be an old field enclosing the feature.

Tithe map of 1834 shows this feature as simply a waterfilled pit.
Checked by E. Rose (NAU).
