Walls of moated site at Grove Farm, Ashley Green - Chiltern

Remains of probable C15 walls to a strongly defended moated site. Walls have been overgrown with vegetation for many years but some have been cleared to reveal serious structural issues. A grant has been offered by Historic England to the owners to understand the extent and cost of the works needed to conserve the walls. The grant has not been accepted. Further proposals are awaited from the owner.
