Moat House, Sutton Coldfield

The property was designed and built in 1680 as a mansion house by William Wilson, builder, architect and student of Sir Christopher Wren, as a home for his new wife, a wealthy local widow Jane Pudsey who had previously owned Langley Hall with her first husband.
The original gatehouse or lodge, itself a Grade II listed building, and stone bridge remain but no traces of the 'moat' remain. The moat survived until 1860, until which it had to be crossed by a small stone bridge. A sundial is attached to the side of the building.
