Low Butterby moat
Low Butterby moat
The Gatehouse Web Site: Strong House. Moated and walled. The Elizabethan gatehouse, mentioned as the main survival by King, was demolished in 1966, despite being a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The moat is dry and measures c.8m wide and averages c.3m deep. The inner wall is of stone and brick, 3m high with a plinth course running along the major part of its length. Butterby, formerly Beautrove, is first noticed when Roger d'Audre was granted a licence to have a chapel or chantry within his oratory, which he had built within his manor of Beautrove. In c.1240, the manor passed to the Lumleys, and it was probably the occasional residence of this family until 1566 when it passed to the Chaytors.
