Full Description

A homestead moat. (1)
The earthwork remains today as a shallow depression round three sides of the present farm buildings. There is no visible remnant of any internal bank with the possible exception of a small mound in the angle where the moat turns SE… Ridge and furrow has to all appearances destroyed the whole of the SE boundaries of the enclosure… The first excavations decided upon were trenches traversing the paddock within the moat to the NE of the farm buildings. No foundations were met, but pottery finds show an occupation beginning at the latest between 1250 AD and 1450 and continuing until the present day. These finds include the usual Nottingham green glaze ware. (2)
See M1788 for possible hillfort here.
