Hob Uid: 307439
Location :
Staffordshire
East Staffordshire
Okeover
Grid Ref : SK1540247425
Summary : A medieval/ post medieval moat is visible as earthworks on lidar data. The moat platform measures approximately 27.5 x 34 metres and is located on the confluence of two streams, which form the south-west and north-east arms of the moat ditch. An outer bank lines the south-east and north-east arms of the moat. The moat could not be discerned from the available aerial photography due to the continuous masking by woodland. The moat was mapped as part of the Staffordshire National Mapping Programme project from 2 metre resolution composite lidar data.
More information : About a quarter of a mile S of Okeover Hall is a square intrenchment,
called the Hallsteads. The trench or moatis crossed on the north side by a stone arch in good preservation. (1)

The NW and SW arms now dry are artifically constructed and average 19.0m widend 2.5m deep, a shallow depression in the centre of the outer bank of the NW arm may indicate the site of the former drawbridge. Under afforestation. Fair condition. No evidence of a building was seen. (2)
