The Ground Plan and description of Broughton Moat in Huntingdonshire
The earthwork at Broughton probably marks the site of the Abbot of Ramsey’s manor house. The inner enclosure is a quadrangle averaging 300 ft. by 200 ft. enclosed by a wide and deep moat; it stands at the east side of a larger enclosure, roughly 950 ft. by an average of 800 ft. This larger enclosure is surrounded by a bank and a ditch, except on the east side where a brook takes the place of the ditch,; on the west the ditch is now occupied by a roadway. There are several large depressions in the larger enclosure.
