Full Description

Rectangular moat with outer yard and fish pond. Occupied by Tattingstone Hall before demolition and flooding for the Alton reservoir. The Hall (see PMed) dated to C16-C19. The moat island had been raised and levelled with crag sands before construction work, and a single Med potsherd (?C13-C14) from below the crag suggests the moat may be medieval, there was, however, no signs of a pre C16 building within the limited area of the excavation (S1).
