History

Detailed Description

A complex arrangement of moated enclosures, ponds and watercourses suggest that there may have been gardens here in the 13th and 14th centuries. The central moated site appears to have been a 16th or 17th century house surrounded by gardens and ponds while the moat to the south may have been the site of a medieval manor house. A further moat to the north surrounds a small island, and streams to either side filled two fishponds.
