Danby Rectory Moat, Danby Wiske, Coast to Coast
Danby Wiske Rectory Moated Site
The moated site consists of an irregular ellipse enclosing an area of about 2 hectares. Another, small rectangular moated site is found to the north east, less than a half hectare. There is an earthwork enclosure at the north of the outer moat. On the east the moat now exists as a shallow ditch. At the west there is a double earthwork including a prominent outer bank with an internal moat.
The River Wiske runs to the east of the moated site, and in the north east corner there is the remains of a connecting channel to the river. The remains of buildings survive beneath the ground on this site. There are non-scheduled buildings on the site, including the Glebe House and garage.
The moated site is close to the Coast to Coast path as it passes through Danby Wiske.
