Full description

A possible three-sided moat was identified at Attlebridge Hall.
E. Rose (NAU), 14 June 1978.

The site is now called Old Hall Farm.
The moat has now been filled in by the farmer, but prior to infilling it was noted that the moat had no drainage function and therefore was apparently genuine. The 'Hall' is a farmhouse with some 17th century brickwork, and possible suggestions of a timber frame beneath.

No definite signs of this moat could be identified on the aerial photographs, although this was largely due to vegetation cover.
