CASTLE HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

Castle Leavington. A very fine motte, placed at an angle of a steep bluff, the ground to the west being a level plateau, on which no signs of an attached bailey can be seen. The earthen breastwork round the top, enclosing an area of 0.5 acres, is in good condition, and retains its entrance on the south, and its inner platform. The outer slope of the motte is slightly flattened except on the south east and the ditch completely surrounds it. The manor was given to Robert de Brus early in the 12th century but by 1274 only the motte remained. Scheduled.
