Notes about this historic site

1 A field containing a series of broad, shallow ditches. It has been suggested that there is a moat on the site (PRN 1589), but the most obvious feature is a fishpond in the SW corner of the field close to the road. The pond is approximately 25m by 16m with an exit channel in its SE corner.
