Slade Green, Howbury Moat
Slade Green, Howbury Moat
The walls of Howbury Moat date back to the 12th century, although a manor house occupied the site well over a thousand years ago. Several rebuilds occurred over the years, and notable occupants include Odo, Bishop of Bayeux and the distinguished admiral, Sir Cloudesley Shovel.

The last house to occupy the site was of 17th century build, inhabited until 1935 after which, it fell into ruin.

Behind the moated area to the left can be seen the 17th century tithe barn.
