About Margaret Venables An annual pagent is held near Kinderton to honor their Norman roots.

Medieval moat surviving as earthwork and site of Old Kinderton Hall demolished in C18. Alleged site of castle at Domesday. The moated island is slightly trapezoidal from 40 to 50m east to west by 50m north to south. Fishponds are visible. Formal garden earthworks are present. Rejected by King as garden mound and moat. 'The antient hall of Kinderton stood near the banks of the Dane, at the distance of two fields breadth from the site of the Roman works of (the supposed) Condate, which probably suggested a position for the Norman head of this barony. A part only of the moat is remaining, but it formerly inclosed a parallelogram of several acres, in the south-west angle of which is a large circular mound, which was most probably raised to support the keep tower.'
