Summary

This monitoring report consists of two parts: recorded observation of the machine de-silting of a section of the moat ditch adjacent to the southern curtain wall of Mettingham Castle, with a speculative interpretation of the design and profile of the original moat, and a tape and eye sketch survey of both faces of the surviving fragment of the South Curtain Wall with descriptive notes on the fabric of the building, the suviving architectural detail and a preliminary interpretation and speculative reconstruction.
