The Moat

Looked like they were ploughing when I was on my way in, and by the time I left, they’d turned over two massive areas (here’s one) where the ice rink and pavilion had been. Not sure what’s happening next - more turf likely - I’d like a wildflower meadow! After it was drained by the Duke of Wellington back in the 1840s, they used it for various things, including a WWI training ground and allotments. There’s still a beautifully kept bowling green for the Yeoman Warders at the south west corner.
