Brockhurst, Derbyshire

Brockhurst is a small hamlet in Staffordshire, England, 1 mile sorth-west of Blymhill. Today it consists of Brockhurst farm, a red brick 18th farmhouse, and two blocks of semi-detached houses built in 1954. The buildings rest on the site of a much earlier settlement, as evidenced by medieval earthworks. These include a square moat to the south-eastern side of the farmhouse, with raised mound within, and the line of a second moat seventy-five yards to the south-west.
