MONUMENT NO. 106693

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of a motte castle, situated within the flood plain of the River Clun. It would appear that the castle, along with the motte castles at Leintwardine and Clungunford, controlled crossing points at the lower downstream portion of the river. The flat-topped, steep-sided oval mound measures 27 metres by 32 metres at its base, 11 metres by 14 metres across the top and stands up to 3.5 metres high. The size of the mound indicates that it was only large enough to support a watch tower. Scheduled. The earthwork remains of this small motte were mapped from aerial photographs as part of the RCHME: Marches Uplands Mapping Project.
