Moat House, Pound Lane.
ST41NE MARTOCK CP POUND LANE (West side)
6/321 Moat House
House. C17 but entirely reconstructed in late C20. Ham stone cut and squared, some coursed rubble, ashlar dressings;
plain clay tile roof with stepped coped gables; stone chimney stacks. T-plan; 2 storeys, 3 bays of which the centre bay
projects and is the earlier fragment. The projection has an angled owner buttress to the south-east, and a garderobe
projection under lean-to roof on north-east corner; hollow chamfer aullioned windows of 3 near semi-circular arched
lights with incised spandrils, without labels, to both levels: on the south return wall a single light window below and
a 2-light above, both hollow chamfer moulded but with flat heads to lights; the lower has a label, probably C20; above
this last a corbelled chimney stack with offsets at head, into which it built in a plaque reading: "Robert Sills 1659".
Remainder of building not of special interest: interior not seen. Thought to be one of the fragments of the medieval
manor, set in a moat; the main building being on site of the churchyard to the east. Robert Wills purchased lands from
the manor In Martock in 1633. (VCH, Vol III, 1983).
