Possible Moat 200m E of Redlands Farm, Aston Cantlow.

Description of this historic site

A possible Medieval moat, a wide ditch usually surrounding a building. The moat is still partially visible as an earthwork. It is situated 500m south of the disused railway line at Newnham, Aston Cantlow.

Notes about this historic site

1 There are traces of earthworks and moats in Old Close (PRN 1588) and in a field nearby called Moat Meadow.
2 Traces of a moat were seen in a field 200m E of Redlands Farm. The N side was waterfilled and the other sides discernible as depressions in the ground. The site was only seen from the road.
3 The field contains a series of broad, shallow ditches which do not form an obvious moated site, although there could be a moated site somewhere in the complex. The most obvious feature is a fishpond (PRN 5277).
