In 1381 Wallop included a moated capital messuage with a dovecote; the castle ditch recorded in c 1350 probably refers to this (VCH 1968). (Shropshire HER)

Moat Field to the South-West of Lower wallop Farm may be the site of Wallop Castle, a 'moated capital messuage with a dovecote' documented in 1381. A castle ditch is referred to in 1350. (PastScape ref. Jackson)
