Description

Two, L shaped, wide, water-filled arms (S & E) of probable moat. Much recently disturbed building debris spread on interior surface, mostly PMed but including largish fragment of worked limestone (left in situ). Presumably remains of extensive range of buildings shown on 1880s OS map when named Gormor's Farm. Named as Gymers on OS 1836 map.
Also large (eratic?) stone on exterior of moat on approx boundary line of Easty Park (see HUD 015) - possible boundary marker? (S1).
Further research needed.
