Medieval earthwork bank

Description of this historic site

The site of an earthwork bank, possibly of Medieval date. The bank might form a defensive earthwork. Alternatively, it might be associated with a nearby moat. The bank is situated 100m south west of the church at Willoughby.

Notes about this historic site

1 On the footway from Willoughby to Grandborough about a furlong W of the church is a long bank of earth, seemingly thrown up for the purpose of fortification.
2 There are two banks which run parallel along the edges of a field which contains a moat (PRN 3055). If these banks are those recorded in reference 1 they are probably Medieval in origin and connected with the moat.
