Although the name of the moat appears on many local signs and markers, there is little remaining of the ancient monument, which is buried beneath a housing estate in the new town. Originally a hunting lodge with a moat, dating back to the sixteenth century, Moons Moat was later extended to include a fishing pool. It was listed as an ancient monument in the late 1960s and today nestles in the heart of the Church Hill South residential area.
Now thanks to an initiative led by the Moons Moat Conservation G and supported by Redditch Borough Council and the Church Hill Big Local Partnership work is underway to restore the site to a pristine condition and turn it into a local amenity site.
Welcome to our site which records its past history and hopefully its bright future.
Please remember this is a scheduled Ancient Monument and that the surrounding area is residential housing. Please act accordingly at all times.
