CASTLE TOOT

DESCRIPTION + /

A Medieval motte castle surviving as an earthwork with buried foundations. Fragments of walling and the remains of the gatehouse were still visible in the 18th century and in 1911 stones forming the base of a causeway or bridge were observed. The buried foundations are near the surface. The castle was probably built by early members of the poweful Mortimer dynasty of marcher lords and demolished in 1150; however dating the castle is made difficult by the fact that the key medieval documents are often not clear whether they refer to this site or that at Castle Ditches.
