A manorial moated site and an adjacent system of fishponds, situated on a slight south and east facing slope on the eastern side of the village of Hindringham. Both moat and fishponds are terraced into the slope. The moat surrounds a sub-rectangular island with maximum dimensions of 81 metres north west-south east by 60 metres. Hindringham Hall, which is Listed Grade II*, stand at the centre of the island. It is built on an E plan, facing SSW, with a central hall and projecting wings at either end, and is dated largely to the second half of the 16th century. The moat itself ranges in width between about 12 metres on the eastern side and 18 metres on the west and is water-filled. Much of the mower part of the inner edge of the moat is revetted by a low flint wall. The southern arm is crossed by a brick-built bridge which, although showing evidence of modern reconstruction, is likely to include remains of a structure contemporary with the 16th century house. The fishponds, which have become silted but remain partly waterlogged, are visible as five rectilinear hollows between 0.5 metres and 1 metre in depth and ranging from about 10 metres to 15 metres in width and up to 75 metres in length. They are contained within a quadrangular enclosure bounded on the north side by the scarp of the terrace, on the east side by a slighter scarp, and on the south and west sides by the channelled stream. The site, excluding Hindringham Hall, is Scheduled.
