Built in the 13th century the manor was more of a palace for Queen (Isabella) than a castle with its great lavish park of fields and woods, its fishponds and game, but it was the most shameful time in England's history. But before its enclosure it was surrounded by a moat, part of which I believe became the 'ducking pool'. Also a second moat outside the city walls, 'Crow moat' so called, about the year 1700, tall elms, the moat more square than oblong, whilst the island within was oblong shape, the moat (35 x 25 yards) was crossed at the eastern end by a bridge. At the other end was a building in a enclosed field over a smaller bridge into Crow Lane, not a straight line, Albion Street not built then.
