(TL 7135 5246) Cowlinge Hall (NAT) Moat (NR) (1)
Cowlinge Hall. Grade II. A 16th-17th century moated,
timber-framed and plastered farmhouse. The house was renovated and
restored in the 20th century. The moat is quadrangular in form
with the NE side longer than the SW. It has two entrances on
the NE side. (2-3)
A waterfilled homestead moat surrounds Cowlinge Hall (name
confirmed). The house is generally as described by authority 3,
but not outstanding. The moat has been dug into a gentle north
facing slope, with a slight outer scarp 0.5m high around all
but the lower NE side. The original entrance causeway crosses
this arm but the footbridge is modern. The deep south arm is
16.0m wide with a max depth of 4.0m, but the east and west arms
become shallow towards the NE with the water draining from the
Published survey (25") revised. (4)
