CASTLE HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

A Motte and an associated ditch system surviving as earthworks was discovered during tree felling in 1957. The earthwork consisted of a small platform 128 feet by 25 feet defended on the north by two deep transverse ditches, and on the south by three similar ditches. Excavations discovered no finds but a possible hearth sealed beneath a layer of stones. An 11th or early twelfth century date has been suggested for the Motte. Scheduled.
