The moat has a flat bottomed profile and survives up to 4 metres wide at the base and has a maximum width of 20 metres at the top. It has a maximum depth of 2.5 metres. Excavations on the platform have recovered pottery dating to the 15th and 16th century. The site was abandoned by the early 17th century when the present Red House was constructed.

The moated house was documented in the 14th Century, when a licence to crenellate Rede House was granted. The date of the crenellation licence is unclear, one source has 1342 and another 1392. Source (6) has 1342 and 1392 is what is listed in the Scheduled Ancient Monument record (35466). (6)

According to this digitised version of the Calendar of Patent Rolls that was published in 1900, a licence was granted "..for Thomas Ughtred to crenellate his dwelling places of Monketon on the Moor and Kexby by Staynfordbrigge, co. York" on 25 February 1342. See link for details. (7)
