Monument details

HER Number:241/2
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Site of Moated Manor House


This moated site is immediately south of the church and was the site of a house fortified by Sir John Trussel. The moat survives as a wide rectangular pond, now dry, with outer retaining bank. The north and south arms can be traced as a shallow depressions though there is no evidence of the west arm. It is possible that the moat was never completed as the Tithe Award Map does not show a complete circuit.
