Description

The monument comprises the remains of a medieval moated homestead. A trapezoidal area measuring c. 39m by 23m is raised up around 1m above ground level. The interior is flat and the sides are quite steep on the north and west. On the east the side is less steep and only 0.3m high. On the south there is no clear-cut edge.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval settlement. The monument is well preserved and is an important relic of the medieval landscape. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of intact archaeological deposits and structural evidence.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
