DRAKELOW HALL

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of a moated site, comprising four fishponds and a moated enclosure roughly 55 metres square and showing traces of ridge and furrow. A linear set of fishponds lie to the north west with a single fishpond further west. A low causeway runs between the linear fishponds and leads to the outer edge of the moat where it becomes a raised bank from which a bridge or drawbridge would have given access onto the island. Another single fishpond lies close to the moat's north eastern arm. This site was an important Royal demesne manor and sanctuary and is documented in a letter of 1355.
