A medieval moat visible as earthworks on air photographs. Only three sides of the moat survive and to the north another ditch may be part of a field enclosure. The moated enclosure may possibly be the site of a manor house held by William de Thorntoft in 1316. (PastScape)

Gatehouse Comments

Mentioned by Le Patourel in a manner suggesting something rather more than a domestic moated site.
