Monument Number 355339

Hob Uid: 355339
Location :
Lincolnshire
East Lindsey
Great Steeping
Grid Ref : TF4495065830
Summary : Probable Medieval moat seen as an earthwork, alleged to be a grange belonging to Bardney Abbey.
More information : [TF 4493 6583] MOAT [GT]. (1)

The monks of Bardney had a large mansion at Monksthorpe built
in 1318, surrounded by a moat, which still remains,
encompassing about two acres. (2-3)

Dense undergrowth made it impossible to ascertain whether any
trace remains of the house.

Published Survey (25") revised. (4)

The moat recorded by Authorities 1-4 was seen as an earthwork and
mapped from poor quality air photographs:-

The moat, of probable Medieval date, is visible on three sides only
on air photographs. It is 140m in length and has an apparent
entrance on the north side. It is more centrally located at
TF 4495 6583. (Morph No. LI.180.3.1)

This description is based on data from the RCHME MORPH2 database.
