1 Moat House Farm was the manor house of the manor of Mappleborough Green or Studley Hay. The house has some 17th century timber framing. There is also some 16th century and later work. The moat, with water, remains to the SW and SE sides of the house, but the remainder has disappeared. It is said to have originally continued across the site of the present main road and included a small cottage on the other side.
2 The moat remains to the SW and SE sides of the house – somewhat overgrown.
3 The moat is approximately 10m wide and 2m deep and is wet.
4 Originally the moat appears to have been fed from a spring to the NE. The moat is now completely dry. It appears in its present form in the map accompanying the tithe award (1849).
