Notes about this historic site

1 Moat Close and a waterfilled moat marked.
2 Only the W and S sides are marked.
3 Probably the original site of a manor house (PRN 1725). The S and W sides are intact and waterfilled, the N and E sides are just evident through the undergrowth. There is no surface evidence of building.
4 The E arm may be represented by the present day stream bed, or by the low drop onto the island from the E slope, which could mark an infilled ditch.
