Taken from NRHE record:
(TL 8114 5005) Truckett's Hall (NAT) (Moat shown but not described).

Trucketts Hall. 16th/17th century timber framed and plastered, part modernised. Grade II.

Two small portions of an arm of a moat remain at Trucketts Hall. The northern portion is waterfilled, and a duck pond now occupies the SE corner of the moat which the owner confirms once continued round the S. of the farm outbuildings. Published survey correct.

Trucketts Hall is as described by authority 2 but not outstanding.

A waterfilled pond 50.0m long by 10.0m wide lies to the NE of the house but this, together with other waterfilled ponds to the SE cannot now be identified as the remains of a moat.
