Monument Number 405537

Hob Uid: 405537
Location :
Greater London Authority
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : TQ3339096360
Summary : Manor House Of Enfield
More information : (TQ 33399636) Moat (NR) (site of) (NAT) (1)

The moat, at Oldbury, enclosed a rectangular area of about 160 yards
long, 30 yards wide and 2 yards deep. The other 3 arms, still visible in 1902, were about 130 yards by only 12 yards wide. In the northwest corner of the enclosed area there was a small mound which could have marked the site of either a wood or masonry tower protecting the entrance or a mill. A coin of Edward I (1272-1307) was dug up in 1872.

In 1347 Humphrey de Bohum received a licence to fortify his Manor
House at Enfield. As this is the closest moated site to Enfield Town
(as far as is known) it is suggested that it may mark the original
site of the Manor House of Enfield. No substantial stonework has beenfound, so perhaps the fortification was never carried out. (2)

There is no trace of a moat. The site has been entirely re-developed.An Enclosure map of 1803 shows the moat to be complete and water filled. (3)
