HAPTON CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Earthwork and masonry remains of a probable 14th century castle, ruinous by 1725. The site of Hapton castle is a simple rectilinear enclosure some 40 metres north to south by 30 metres east to west formed by a substantial dry ditch 14 metres wide and up to 4 metres deep (now partially infilled), and the rock face of a natural gorge. Two fragments of masonry are the only remains on the central area, which probably supported a tower or barmkin. Scheduled.
