A homestead moat now under trees within White Hall Wood; there is a heavy scatter of medieval building debris on the island. {1}

A medieval moated site located in White Hall Wood which is believed to be the site of Martin Grange. Martin Grange, or monastic farm, was associated with Kirkstead Abbey. At the end of the 12th century a grange of Kirkstead Abbey was established at the western end of the parish of Roughton in about 1196 to 1198 when Roland of Woodhall gave his demense woodland and assarts to the abbey. It may subsequently have been the site of Whitehall, a property known to have been leased by Ralph Lord Cromwell. It takes the form of a moated island with external banks and adjacent fishpond. A raised platform in the centre of this island is believed to represent the site of a building. An earthen causeway which crosses the northern arm is thought to represent the original access point. For the full description of this scheduled monument please refer to the National Heritage List for England. {4}{5}
