HALLSTEADS

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of medieval moated site, still visible as an earthwork. The hillside within the moat has been scarped to create a roughly circular inner enclosure. This once carried a stone wall, described as having been four or five feet thick. A line of fishponds run eastwards from the northern arm of the moat. A manor house is known to have stood on this site, but no upstanding building remains survive. This may be the site of rhe house for which a licence to crenellate was granted in 1479.
