MONUMENT NO. 382226

DESCRIPTION + /

To the west of Bradfield Hall is a moat, which was originally a grange of the Abbot of Bury St Edmunds. The moat is in good condition and is set in permanent pasture parkland on level ground. It measures overall 80.0m east-west and 70.0m north-south. The ditch averages 18.0m in width and 4.0m in depth and has a sharp `V' profile. The moat is obviously cleared out which may have destroyed the clay lining, leaving the moat dry with a waterfilled pond on the same level close to the south-west angle. No inlet or outlet could be seen so the moat was probably spring fed. There is an outer bank ranged along the west side and a fragment of another on the north. The latter may well be a spoil heap as the bottom of the ditch here shows signs of disturbance. The surface of the island is flat and carries several old trees. No traces of a former building could be seen. Scheduled.
