HOGSHAW

DESCRIPTION + /

Earthworks of a deserted medieval settlement, moat and fishponds. Field investigations carried out in the 1970s found the moat to have internal dimensions of 52 metres by 40 metres, enclosed by a ditch 11 metres wide and 1.4 metres deep. A former watercourse extends from the southern arm to feed two fish ponds. Settlement earthworks are present to the east of the moat. The site was the location of the Preceptory of Knights Hospitallers, which was founded in 1180 and dissolved in 1470, and a nunnery cell of the the Sisters of St John which was moved to Buckland Priory in 1180. The church was in use until 1650 and in a ruinous state by the end of the 17th century. No traces of the church have been recorded.
