14th century moat excavated at Fulham Palace

A moat which dates back to 1392 is being excavated at Fulham Palace after being filled in with garbage in the 1920s.

A council spokesman said the moat was filled in with builders’ debris during the 1920s by Fulham Council at the request of the Bishop of London who lived in the palace.

“That move led to public outcry and the issue was even raised in the Houses of Parliament,” he added

He said the moat was filled in with items such as glass and stoneware bottles, china, teapots, porcelain dolls and even a perfectly preserved ‘Lipton Tea’ enamel sign which has now been unearthed.
