Lower Grounds farm
Lower Grounds farm
A medieval moat is marked on the maps in the field between us and the farm; up to 5 feet deep in places, it's visible here as a shallow depression in the grass, and partly marked by the small bushes in the middle distance. It's a scheduled ancient monument, described at LinkExternal link as a "moated site [with] ridge and furrow cultivation remains and a building platform". Some water remains in the moat to the south and west, and several lumps/bumps/undulations in the central area have been interpreted as the footings of buildings.
