The medieval moated site at Northwoods farm.
Discovering one day an italic sign saying Moat on an old OS map, I realised that this sign was depicting a place of interest at Northwoods farm in the parish of Dodcott-cum-Wilkesley.
This was to be my husband David's and my home for the next 47 years and I wanted to know more about its history.
However, this was not so easy to find out; the site was an impossible mess with shoulder-high undergrowth, swamp and barbed wire. David wanted to make the area safe and he needed to clear out the moat to its original depth.
