Triple moat. The smaller (central) moat limited in area, `and lies within the eastern side of a large oblong moat, which contains a pond within its S-W angle; the northern side is mutilated and spreads into a large pond. Outside the eastern arm of the large moat, and opposite the smaller inner one is another of medium size, led by a channel on the south and a pond for the overflow on the east.'

May 1994, Scheduling information: Three separate moats of differing type enclosed the hall and two areas to the E and SW. There are a wide varietyof features and the earthworks survive well.
