Buildings (Site)
Moat Lane, Old Milton. Traces of a square moat with wet ditch, fed by over grown ditch at northern corner. Probably C. 13/14 homestead moat, although no trace of the building remains. Underlying the moat, features of three different periods were found. 1. Two rectangular enclosures - one palisaded, one ditched. 2. Two ditch enclosures - both of which contained buildings. A hearth with early Mediaeval pottery was also found. 3. Three enclosures - one sub-divided into three. Pottery of C.11/12 found. Excavations revealed the moat to be newer than the other remains. Finds included quantities of C.14 sherds, a red bowl and cooking pot. Site now built over. O.S.A. No. SZ29 SW1. Ref: 1. Arch. J. 1967, pp.48-64. Ref: 2.
