The Mystery of the Manor Moat - Llancaiach Fawr

This week's show sees Tony and the Team head across the Bristol Channel to Llancaiach Fawr Manor, near Caerphilly, South Wales, to investigate an ancient moat.
The geophys team feel the site should provide them with the ideal conditions to determine what the ditch was originally designed to guard - but the project soon becomes one of the most puzzling investigations in the programme's history.

Also on one of the day's, digging was interrupted by some nonsensical game involving a round object and a team of men of dubious ability! Definitely the wrong shaped ball for this part of the world.....
