MONEY HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of a motte and bailey castle, built between 1135-53 are visible as earthworks on air photographs. It was incorporated into a railway embankment in 1851 and a bungalow was built on part of this embankment in the early 1980s. The motte is roughly square in plan and stands approximately 3 metres high. It was originally surrounded by a moat ditch, which is now partially infilled but survives as an earthwork on the south eastern side. A plan drawn in 1913 shows the bailey on the western side of the motte, defined by a curving bank.
