A medieval moat at Hope Cottage, High Street, Egham


An archaeological evaluation and excavation took place at the site of Hope Cottage on the High Street in Egham, and a moat, 5.6m wide, was excavated. The moat is associated with a manor house that stood nearby in the medieval period. The manor house was not located, although it is thought to have lain to the south of the site. The earliest moat cut dates to the early 14th century or earlier and was recut several times before falling out of use in the late 16th century. A single posthole of medieval date and an undated pit were also recorded. The moat was sealed by post-medieval made-ground and truncated in places by later pits.
