Listing Text

SS 62 SW

3/80 Stone retaining walls forming
moat circa 5-10 mtres west of
- Brightly Barton

Stone retaining walls forming moat. Medieval, but difficult to date with
certainty. The stone rubble retaining walls, about 3 metres apart, form 3 sides of
a square, the east side, nearest to the present barton, having been infilled. The
moat is believed to be about 3 metres deep. The house originally stood in the
centre of the site, before apparently being moved probably in the C17 to its present
site. The moat is a unique survival in North Devon; Devon is a county with very few
moated sites.
