Monument details

HER Number:19/4/4
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Ince Manor - moat

Summary

The remains of a rock-cut moat, partly infilled and partly overlain by modern roads, survives to the east of the hall. The moat is defined by a bank up to 1m high. There is some suggestion that is is not actually a moat, but that the manor stands on a rocky outcrop, the edges of which have been quarried away. The moat is part of a Scheduled Monument which includes the Medieval Hall, cottages and moat.
