Notes about this historic site

1 c.
2 The moat appears to have been subrectangular and about 75 by 50m, with a pair of fishponds to the SE.
3 Only the waterfilled NW arm survives, slight surface depressions mark the course elsewhere. Hurley Hall is within the ‘enclosed area’ and is presumably on the site of earlier manor houses.

5 The moat and fishponds were backfilled in the early ?20th century following a drowning. The present owner, Mr T. Horton, re-excavated both the moat and fishponds in around 1983. This information came from discussions with Mr Horton in 2007.
