Type and Period (2)
Small, roughly rectangular moat, unoccupied, connected by a sluice to the Black Bourn. Appears to be part of the garden in a painting of Little Haugh Hall done in the 1730s by Peter Tillemans (d. 1734) for the owner, Cox Macro (1683-1767)(S1)(S2). Sale particulars 1947 list the moat as `water, 0.683 acre', the moated island as `Island Garden, 0.236 acre' (S3). For other garden features also probably made for Cox Macro, see NRN 001 & 012.
