Nether Poppleton Medieval Moated Site


Grazed Grassland, Mixed Woodland, Riverbank


Dog Friendly, Walking, Wheelchair Accessible

This site, popular with local dog walkers is a locally important archaeological site. Just to the north of St Everilda’s Church is an area where buildings used by people of high status were constructed surrounded by a moat and adjacent duckponds. Some evidence of these former buildings and the moat can still be seen when walking around the site. The area featured in a ‘Timewatch’ archaeological excavation shown on BBC TV some years ago. A rare breed of sheep is also kept in these fields.
