Notes about this historic site

1 Discovered during field investigation, the remains of a homestead moat. The site is overgrown and there is no definite evidence of a building. The enclosed area is hard-packed earth, dry and slightly raised. The moat measures some 56m overall and is nearly square in plan. The steep-sided arms are 7m in width and up to 1.2m in depth. The N arm has been filled in, only the inner scarp partially remains. Water was supplied by a stream to the N corner of the moat.
