Full Description

Moat. Parts of small square on W side of green, (S1).

An angular waterfilled pond is visible to the NW of some
16th century cottages at Blacksmith's Green. The pond, dug on
level ground and filled by natural drainage, averages 8.0m
wide by 1.0m deep with a depression 0.4m deep running from the
northern arm for 25.0m to a roadside ditch. No trace of a
complete moated enclosure was seen; the features were probably
dug as drainage ponds or clay pits, (S2).
