Monument record MYO46 - Moat, Deighton Hall


In 1619 it was described as 'fair and new built and moated round about', with a dovecot in its grounds, and in 1672 it had 14 hearths. Although the house now on the site incorporates two carved overmantels, some doors, a window, and some structural timbers of the early 17th century, it is a small square building and appears to have been erected in the earlier 18th century, perhaps soon after the partition of the estate, as a farm-house. The site is still moated.(From: 'Escrick', A History of the County of York East Riding: Volume 3: Ouse and Derwent wapentake, and part of Harthill wapentake (1976), pp. 17-28.
