Possible Moat to W of Wappenbury Farm, Wappenbury

Description of this historic site

Documentary evidence suggests that this may be the site of a moat, a wide ditch usually surrounding a building, of Medieval date. It is situated 1km north east of Hunningham Bridge.

Notes about this historic site

1 On a mid 19th century sketch map of Wappenbury, a field at this location is called Moat Close.
2 As this corresponds to the NW corner of the earthwork (WA 1840), this latter site may be the one referred to. No sign of any other “site” in the area was noted on the fieldwork.
