MONUMENT NO. 240946

DESCRIPTION + /

Medieval moat, probably the site of Ufton Robert Manor House documented in 1333 as belonging to William de Uffington. Excavations in the 19th century located bridge piles, a gateway and other foundations. A survey by RCHME field staff in 1993 located the earthworks of the moat comprising a trapezoidal island measuring 50 metres northwest/southeast by 30 metres northeast/southwest, surrounded by a ditch up to 10 metres wide. The moat was set between four fishponds on the same orientation. The fishponds were fed from an artificial stream which flowed into the south pond. The water was controlled to the ponds and moat by a series of sluices. The pond immediately to the northwest of the moat was fed an overflow sluice in the moat. Apart from this pond all the remaining features held water. The earthworks have been scheduled.
