The Old Moat House, Bold.


The Old Moat House in Gorsey Lane, Bold, just outside Burtonwood in Cheshire, is a nice example of a local moated house, the moat dating from the 13th century, the current house dating from the 18th century. It is similar to the other nearby moated house Bradley Hall, which is situated on the other side of Burtonwood village. Though not as grand as Bradley Hall as it is lacking the gateway and historical features, it is nonetheless still striking and is just as enigmatic. The moat is apparently fed by a natural spring on the western side and drains as a Mersey feeder to the east. The property has recently been up for sale.
