Moygne's Moat at Great Raveley, which is still wet on the north, east and west sides, encloses an area of 300 ft. by 250 ft. There is a slight bank nearly all round, on the inside, and a very strongly marked bank outside the moat on the west side, and lesser banks on the other sides. About 140 ft. away towards the north-east is a deep trench lying at a tangent with the moat; running at right angles with this trench are two lesser dykes which, together with the large banked dyke at the end of the field, form a square enclosure; east of this is a sunk space called ‘The Vineyars.’
