Notes about this historic site

1 Moat marked.
2 On the OS map this feature appears as a small elongated stretch of water in line with other stretches a little to the S. They are all on the course or conjectural course of the earthwork Harborough Bank (PRN 1694). There are no remains identifiable as being part of a moat. The pond here is now a dilapidated ornamental garden feature.
3 Noted in moats survey.
