Summary Description of a Scheduled Monument
Summary Description and Reason for Designation
The following provides a general description of the Scheduled Ancient Monument.
The monument comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval or post-medieval moated homestead. Old Radnor Castle is set beneath steep slopes to the east, while the ground falls away to the west and north. It is an oval moated enclosure, measuring c.40m by c.33m, defined by a steep-sided ditch up to c.2.6m deep; the west side has been damaged and partially destroyed by later activity. The entrance may originally have been on the north. It lies close to Old Radnor Church and was described in 1607 as a ‘moated parsonage’.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval and post-medieval settlement. The monument is well preserved and is an important relic of the earlier landscape. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of intact archaeological deposits and structural evidence.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
