Full Description

Moat. Shown as unoccupied and rectangular on OS 1:10560 map. S of Pound Green. (Probably: The New Fairstead on 1836 OS)(S1).
Shown as occupied by a farmhouse, with a group of farm buildings outside on the NW side in 1846, described as `House, Homestead, Yards and Moat', belonging to James Simpson, occupied by William Chapman; field to SE named as `Fairstead or Ashes pasture' (S2).
Site flattened by 1973 (S3).

The moat appears as very clear cropmarks on recent aerial photography (Google 2018), suggesting good preservation of archaeological deposits in the Moat ditches and survival of features relating to occupation within the Moat platform.
