Full Description

Moat, discovered during field investigation. The feature lies in a pasture to the NW of the church, still wet, with the enclosed mound (max height 1.5m) much disturbed, though no traces of foundations could be found. It is local tradition that a castle stood here, but this was not substantiated by any literary authorities. (1)
Although situate in a pasture field a deliberate attempt has been made to destroy this work; the ditch has been completely ploughed away and only a portion of the island now survives. No building debris is evident, the much disturbed island now has a max height of 0.8m. (2)
In process of being filled in 1974. (3)
Clear subrectangular water filled moat. (4)
