Site Description A moat is located at the head of a stream valley, generally overlooked from surrounding ground and fed by small streams which appear to have caused some recent erosion.
The earthwork comprises a ditch enclosing a roughly 30m square area. The ditch averages 7m wide, 2m deep on the south but only 0.3m deep on the north. It is broken by a 6m wide causeway towards the south-west corner. In the south of the interior is a 14m wide platform, possibly constructed for a building though no traces of one survive.
