Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was invited by Natural England to undertake a programme of detailed archaeological survey of Moor Head decoy pond and wood at Escrick, near Selby in North Yorkshire (NGR SE 642 418). The survey was carried out on behalf of Escrick Park Estate in order to inform the appropriate conservation management of the pond and to propose reconstruction options for it. A lower level survey of an unnamed pond to the north of Moor Head (referred to throughout as the northern pond) on the Escrick Estate (NGR SE 636 426) was also included in the project. The survey was undertaken in February 2009.
The project comprised a documentary study and a landscape survey. The documentary study entailed an investigation of primary, cartographic and secondary sources, as well as
information available online. The survey comprised an English Heritage level 3 survey for Moor Head decoy pond and a level 2 survey for the northern pond. The areas within the
woods, around each of the decoy ponds, were also searched for any additional features.
