The Moat

Although often referred to as a castle, these ruins are the remains of a medieval manor house, once surrounded by a wide, water filled moat.

Moated sites are relatively common across Birmingham but no other was constructed on the same scale as Weoley, and no other example survives so well on the ground today.

The Bourn Brook that once fed water into the moat flows today in a culvert under your feet. 

During prolonged heavy rain in February 2014 the moat filled with water, bringing the past to life!
