Brailsford Hall and moat (sites of). (1) The old manor house of Brailsford, which stood a little to the east of the rectory, was taken down about 1777. The outline of the moat can still be seen. (2) Brailsford Old Hall, which long ago disappeared, stood to the south-east of the present rectory house; there are traces of a large moat. (3) The feature published as a moat is a mutilated boundary bank. The topographical situation is such that a water filled moat could not have been engineered. The published site of the hall is greatly disturbed and material from the site has been incorporated in the rectory and Hall Farm. (4) The site of the first Brailsford Hall was marked by a moat east of the rectory, which was ploughed out some time before 1949. (6)
