The enclosure at Midloe is 640 ft. long, but while the south end is 510 ft. wide, the north end is only 240 ft. It is possible that the whole enclosure was of the former width, and that the house stood within an inner moat. a large pond east of the house may have been part of the moat, but there are no signs of a moat on the south side of the house. A well-defined bank runs inside the moat.
