Fishpond at Site of Thelsford Priory
A Medieval fishpond used for the breeding and storage of fish. It survives as an earthwork. The site has been part excavated, and is situated at Thelsford Priory Charlecote.
1 The only surface indication of the Priory prior to excavation was a large fishpond. A deep area on the N of the site, close to Thelsford Brook, may be either a trace of the moat surrounding the site, or another fishpond.
2 The fishpond still survived.
4 In 1972 during excavation evidence was found for a drain running towards the fishpond and a ditch to drain water from the brook to the fishpond.
5 Area of SAM revised 1996.
