Sir Ralph Shelton moved into his new hall from an earlier house, the site of which is now marked by moats in a nearby pasture. This new hall was moated and semi-fortified. A picture hanging in the present hall depicts a strong courtyard brick building similar to Oxborough Hall, and filling the entire island. This has now completely gone leaving a brick revetment on the inner scarp of the moat. (PastScape)
